Best in Show winner #londonphotofestival @iamHenryRice #Japan #Osaka #London

Henry Rice

I have tried to encapsulate what it is to remember a place; the journey that was undertaken, the sights, the sounds, the memory. The memory however is never a clear image or a solid static representation, it twists and warps over time.

Biography:

Henry Rice is a fine art photographer and traveller. The series mapping is exploring memory of a place.

Congratulations to Leonardo Schenato Barroso winner of our monthly #photocontest reflections #photography

ABOUT THE IMAGE:
This photograph was taken in the city of Curitiba, PR, Brazil. The image captured the instant when several urban artistic interventions were reflected on a rain puddle, along with some more elements. What really caught me on this image was, at first, the intense contrast between the outside – shown by the unfinished window cut and its reflect – and the inside, shown in the rest of the scene. I mean: to me, in this image, it really looks like reality became a picture on the wall. After I took it, other thing that called my attention was the difference between the real window, where we can see some buildings, and the reflected window, where we can see the sky. So, it’s a reflection, but it shows a different thing than what it reflects. Ain’t that peculiar? The letters “CWB”, in the title, refer to the IATA Code of Curitiba. The urban interventions registered on the photo were made by Artestenciva, Bruno Romã, Paula Ariana Calory (PAC) and other unidentified artists.
ABOUT ME:
Photography enthusiast born in Curitiba, PR, Brazil, currently living in Irati, PR, Brazil. Grandson of a classic style painter, gets interested in beautiful landscapes since the early years. Started studying the incredible art of photography in 2007, during the Journalism graduation, specially at the Photojournalism classes. Made an internship at the university`s photo lab. After college, diversified his knowledge with courses about different types of photos and started to take part at photographic trips around Brazil. Started photography expositions in 2016, when his picture “The Owl’s Sunrise in Guaratuba Beach” won a photographic competition organized by the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), and became the cover photo of the “Guaju” magazine, one of the university’s scientific publications.

And the winners are! #architecture competition #London #photography

A big thank you to our judge, Johnny Kerr, for selecting the winners, honourable mentions and the top images for exhibition in our first architecture competition of the year.  We had over 250 entries from around the world and it’s always great to see familiar names along with new artists! We’ll announce the exhibition dates in due course.

And the winners are!!

1st Place

“Hannover” / Frank Machalowski

“Hannover” is a refreshing photographic vision of architecture. The structure, abstracted and stripped to its most raw essence of form, vibrates with energy. The converging lines that result from changes in lens parallax across multiple exposures pull the viewer into the image and add a pleasant textural quality. At first glance it appears chaotic, but when visually processed it is full of beautiful, intricate subtlety.

2nd Place

“Headquarter of the American Forces Berlin 1945 – 1994” (Series) / Sabine Von Breunig

This series is expertly composed and captures a strong sense of place. The visual weight in each scene is well balanced, disregarding tired composition “rules” in favor of a more complex understanding of the relationships between scenic elements. Each interior reveals nuanced details that contribute to the narrative, with nothing extraneous. The subtle colour palettes are well seen and never overstated.

 

3rd Place

“Let’s Go Round Again” and “The High And The Mighty” / Tony Sellen

“Let’s Go Round Again” is a well-visualized architectural detail. The three-dimensional elements are seemingly compressed into a two-dimensional, graphic study of shape and light. The juxtaposition of the round, almost organic shapes on the top two thirds of the composition against the rigid, geometric shapes on the bottom third is a great contrast. This contrast is further enhanced by the tonal range represented in each section: the light tones in the concentric circles surrounded by a dark square on the top two thirds vs. the dark trapezoid surrounded by lighter tones on the bottom third.

“The High and the Mighty” presents interesting proportions, an engaging contrast between modern and classical architectural details, and a rich tonal range.
