Grand Award Winner

Daniel Fojt

I was born in 1980 in Budapest,

Hungary. My interested in photography

started 1999 during my school

years and my first chance to take

photographs. I decided to move and to

build a career in another country and

the UK became my new home in 2009.

Now that I had won this amazing

competition one of my dreams has

comes true. Winning the first prize

seems as if a door has been opened

to a whole new world for me. Also by

winning this sensational prize I am now

able to fulfil my second dream which is

to visit New York. Something I thought

would never happen for years.

I have had great success with my

Manchester and London series in the

UK and now able to go the USA. I can

start on my New York series and I am

hoping to create a series in Paris after

that.

I entered the competition because I

wanted know what chances is I would

have in an international field. Obviously

I was hoping to win but never thought

it would happen. I am just so thrilled

with the first prize.

Jaime Travezan

While studying architecture in my

hometown, Lima, I got a job as a

journalist in a local newspaper. Many

of the articles had to be documented

with photographs, this made me take

a camera and start to do my first

pictures.

Once settled in Europe, I started to

work as a photographer. Always

following my curiosity, I explored many

sides of this profession: fashion and

portraiture, commissioned by glossy

magazines (Elle, Vogue, Tatler, ID, etc)

and photojournalism, publishing in

different newspapers (The Times, El

Pais, L’Événement du jeudi, La Tercera,

etc), covering subjects such as the

Kosovo War winner at The Guardian

Photography Prize, among others.

In 2013, after two years work, I’ve

finalised Proyecto Mírame, Lima, a

series of 50 family portraits aiming to

reflect the cultural, ethnical, religious

diversities present within the peruvian

capital. It has won the 2013 SEE ME

Awards for Photography, and the 2013

PDN Awards. Two of the images have

been selected for exhibition at the

National Portrait Gallery of London as

part of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize

2012 and 2013.

Besides that I’m always interested in

new challenges and that’s the reason

why I have been taking photographs

of architecture and then doing collages

with most of the pictures.

Darren Moore

I am 36 year old a self taught

photographer living and working in

Surrey, England. I have had a passion

for photography for many years now

and in the last few years have taken

steps towards it becoming a full time

profession.

I have been fortunate enough to have

exhibited my work in the USA, Canada,

France and here in the UK - Picking up

a number of international awards along

the way.

Primarily working in Black & White

I specialise in a technique called

‘Daytime Long Exposure’ using Neutral

Density (ND) filters attached to the

lens. ND filters cut out the amount of

light coming into the lens allowing the

shutter to be left open for much longer

than normal, capturing movement

with an ethereal aesthetic. My images

range from 30 second exposures to 15+

minutes.

The sea and the surrounding coastline

of the UK is my greatest source of

inspiration. Having grown up in a

coastal town, the sea has always held

a sense of mystery and wonder for me,

with its seemingly endless horizons,

something which I like to try and

incorporate into my images today. So

it’s no surprise that it features heavily

in my work – unfortunately I don’t live

near the coast at the moment, but use

any and every opportunity to return

and photography allows me to do just

that.

My hope with my photography is

to allow the viewer an escape from

reality. There’s too much reality these

days, for me at least! Nothing wrong

with a little escapism. If my images can

evoke that feeling in another person,

even for a fleeting moment. I’m very

happy indeed.

Le Hong Linh

Living in Ho Chi Minh city - Vietnam, Linh started

his passion for the art of photography in 1990. He’s

currently the Chairman of the Art Council of The

Vietnam Association Photographic Artists and has

judged many international photographic competitions.

His main interests in photography are portrait, children

and daily life…

Linh has won more than 500 photography awards

in 40 countries. 21 of his Photographic works are

exhibited permanently in the International Photography

Museums and among of them has four outstanding

works that selected as the masterpieces of the world

photography.

In the feature, Linh would like to introduce his 10

images that he took of the children in the Vietnamese

Countryside. He felt such joy and happiness recalling

the images of himself in the past. That the children had

so much love and compassion to give, despite lacking

so much in the material aspects of life, is indeed a

miracle.

Jukka Laitila

I am originally from Finland, but for

about a year now, Ihave lived on the

beautiful and rugged North Sea coast

in St Andrews. Experiencing space and

time directly alters the entire process

that goes into photography, and

indeed,Scotland has had a vital influence

in discovering and experimenting with

my own technique, workflow and style.

My favourite part of the photography

process is to be out in the field and to

scout new, interesting locations and to

wait for the right lighting and weather

conditions; the often physically laborious

process of experiencing the elements

can be immensely rewarding. An image

that might take a few seconds to look at

often has taken an entire day’s work to

create.

photographs – be it water, clouds or

people.

While technical knowledge

is,unquestionably, important up to a

point, I don’t examine photographs

from a solely technical point of view.

For me, visually exploring the texture

and ambience of what I see and feel in

the environment are the most important

aspects of photography and, essentially,

photography for me is a dialogue

between the visual, the corporeal and

the nature.

Many of my photographs are long

exposure shots,and the sea is a

particularly suitable element for the

technique. I am not so much interested

in portraying the landscape in realistic

terms, but I’d rather add some surreal

elements to it, something a naked eye

cannot see. I am fascinated by capturing

seconds, often minutes, which is why

I like to include moving subjects in my

Scott Pierson

Art is the perception or vision, through

one’s soul, of their universe put

forth for others to sense (touch, feel,

emote, taste, embrace). If you think

about what a person is. The physical

manifestation of small pieces of the

universe gathered together in a random

order. We are that and the combination

of our experience (Memory). We

are always evolving who we are as

individuals based on those factors.

The really wild mix in this is that we

like things based upon that which we

can’t explain. So I am this little thing

in the universe – I have my own way

of doing things and looking at things

and way that I like to be. I have my

own perception of my little universe

and who I am. Much of what I shot is

similar to many other people, and a

good bit of it that only a few people

can identify with. I strive to connect

with people …. Try and let them see

what I see. Walk in my shoes. That way

I don’t feel so alone and desolate. I feel

like I am part of the universe.

I strive to get pictures that have feeling

and emotional content, introspection

to allow their persona to be shown in

an outward expression. A glimpse of

whom that person is in the moment of

the click of the shutter and show the

beauty that is in each of us.

Olga Rook

Olga Rook is a photographer based in Rotterdam,

the Netherlands. Her artistic approach can be

characterized as poetic conceptualism, grounded

in ideas but flavored with poetry.

Olga obtained her master’s and PhD degrees in

History and specialized in Renaissance culture.

She believes that training as a historian and a

habit of being able to “live in different times at

once” helps her expand the borders of everyday

perception.

Olga’s fine art imagery is about the “magical” side

of everyday life – the symbols, meanings and

hidden “dimensions” discovered and constructed

through our observation and imagination. Potential

meanings and messages are behind everything

we see, and whole parallel universes are to be

evoked by imagination. Olga’s photography is an

attempt to explore ideas and emotions through an

interpretation of visible reality.

Olga has always been intrigued by perception,

imagination and illusion. It is fascinating how

our mind interprets our senses, continuously

constructs alternative realities and attaches

varying meanings to these simulacra. In her work

Olga seeks to explore these virtual universes,

space twists and time warps – essentially, a travel

through the subconscious and, thus, a way to

confront oneself.

Bruna Martini

My work is all about analogue double

exposures and manipulation of images.

The editing process is, for me, the

most important part of creating a

photograph.

I have an idea in mind (usually an

emotional state). That’s my starting

point. Then I choose a model for my

scene. After that, it’s all about editing.

I look through my collection and mix

negatives of details with my subjects.

I cut the image, reassemble its parts

and photograph it again. I don’t really

want to tell a story with a beginning,

development and end, but I want to

communicate a moment, a feeling.

Creating double exposures in

the darkroom is a very technical

experience, all based on calculating

the exact amount of seconds you

need to leave your photos floating in

the liquids. With analogue doubleexposures

you make the time, not only

the abstract time that will show on the

image, but also the real ‘clock’ time.

There isn’t any other tool that gives you

so much control on the image-making

process.

Elad Koren

I am a self taught photographer who began my photography

work on the fauna, strength, and great fragility of Africa. I chose

to use natural colours of the land to help me portray the animals

in almost humanizing way, I plays on shadow, light and

contrast, to immortalize rare scenes of nature, constantly trying

to capture the magnificence of the animals behaviour and the

emotion of their look. I want to show the vividness of the animals

that are more endangered than ever.

I realizes that through photos I can create a strong public

awareness about the importance of preserving and protecting

our wildlife.

I’m based in Israel, but spend most of my time in Africa. Most

of my photos emphasize attitudes and animals with almost

human looks. I do so by using frontal and close up shots to

highlight the animals character traits, as well as the intensity

of their gazes and the majesty of their postures. My work can

be seen in galleries around the world, magazines, wildlife and

landscape sites.

Whenever I succeed in capturing a frame, that feels like a

unique and special moment, it is then I know I have touched

the “divine” state called Art”...

Scott Fowler

For me black and white photography is

about story telling, so when I am taken by

an image, I try to bring the emotion that I

felt when I took the image out, so the viewer

can enjoy it as much as I did capturing it.

Most of my images are controlled in one or

more ways. I often construct the story I see

in my head into black and white imagery.

I run photographic workshops on a New

Zealand Merino Sheep station, where I

encourage the participants to tell stories

using black and white photography, and

don’t let the confusion of colour get in the

way.

For me the black and white image has

always been the core, the essence & the

soul of photography. It has a simplicity,

elegance & beauty that can define

description.

I share my thoughts in my photography with

the viewer, the good days & the bad. It is in

the images you just have to look.

Efrat Weidberg

“Happy Hour” is a part of a portrait series

I took back at 2009, while working as a

bartender in Lower Manhattan.

That period of my life was my “in

between”. I left my first job, as a designer

in advertising, to explore the opportunity

of becoming a photographer, an artist or

maybe a writer. I was taking time to be an

observer and thought that learning others

by watching and even creeping will help me

get to know myself.

Although my intention was to tell other

people’s stories, I realized I was eventually

telling my own.

I am currently working as a UX designer,

and use photography as a creative outlet

whenever I want to tell a story. I am

interested in the complicated relationship

between the self and selflessness in portrait

photography and photojournalism.
