    “Before the migration” - Siberia
    Nenets are indigenous Siberian people whose traditional economy has long been rooted in nomadic reindeer-herding, fishing, and hunting. They live in chums: small huts made of reindeer skins, in order to ensure a minimum of thermal insulation, especially during the winter. In this picture Roman looks out of the chum, with his red cheeks worn by the cold, -50°C. © Tommaso Vecchi

    “Life in balance” - Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya
    Wearing brightly-colored dresses, children dance through the labyrinth of shacks and narrow alleys in Kibera, the largest urban slum and one of Africa’s most desperate areas. Nairobi’s slums, with over 2.5 million people, represent more than half of its population, occupying only 5% of its area. And because of their constant population growth, there is an increase in unemployment, poverty, crime, scarcity of water, and infections. Due to this heartbreaking scenario, children are the only ones who can afford to dream. © Mauro De Bettio
  • color studio portrait of a woman by Daniela Constantini

    Finalist Daniela Constantini

    Finalist Daniela Constantini

    "Nadine"
    My most recent portraiture work is an ode to the women in my life. Women in my family have always been strong figures, hard workers, feral, outspoken, and pillars of the family. I became a photographer when most of the women I looked up to and grew up with were no longer in this world. I decided to honor the women of my past by honouring the women in my present whom I met since I moved to Bern, Switzerland, who are new acquaintances, family, or close friends, and muses to my work. I occasionally include garments or pieces that belonged to my grandmother, great-aunt, and great-grandmother. This work balances past and present, desire, and memories © Daniela Constantini
  • color portrait of twin brothers in Longyan, China by Jiajie Lin

    Finalist Jiajie Lin

    Finalist Jiajie Lin

    “Longyan Boys” - Longyan, China
    Longyan Boys is a self-portrait series I created with my identical twin brother, a story of us reconnecting after years of being apart, through an intimate lens of my own. Growing up I was constantly linked and compared with my identical twin brother, tired of being ‘one of the two’, I was desperate for a way out to carve my own identity. At 16, I journeyed solo to New Zealand while my twin remained in China. After years of separation, after I finally found the independence that I was seeking, after realizing it had cost me our relationship, in an attempt to reconnect and bond again, the series Longyan Boys was created. © Jiajie Lin

    “The Me’en girl” - Ethiopia
    This young girl belongs to Me’en or Bodi tribe, nomadic people that live in southern Ethiopia. After spending time and learning about their culture and rituals this young girl agrees to have her photo taken. What is very specific for the Me’en girls are the tribal beautification marks on their bodies. These beautification marks (scarifications) come in many forms as the bearer wants them to be. They adorn their body with beautiful tribal bracelets. © Biljana Jurukovski
