Congratulations to Matthew Pritchard, 1st Runner Up with his image ‘Homeward Bound’.
When I first saw this structure, I thought it would make an interesting shot but the light wasn’t quite right. I returned about an hour later. I approached from the front and this man was bathing in beautiful golden light. I hurried around to the back to capture the shadow.
Matthew Pritchard has been carrying a camera around with him since the early days of digital. While he still shoots digital, he has recently discovered analogue and develops his own black and white images.
Congratulations to Daniel Bradley, our Best in Show Winner 2018.
Daniel Bradley is a photography graduate who focuses his work on using lighting in the streets to produce impacting and powerful images that form an atmosphere for the viewer.
Taken Canary Wharf, the image looks to express the loneliness and isolation we can feel. It shows how even in a vastly populated area surrounded by people we can still feel alone and in the dark.
Congratulations to this year’s Honourable Mentions. You can read more about the images and photographers on our Facebook page.
AYLC (all three images selected as a series)
A big thank you to our judge Filip Gierlinski and to everyone who attended our Private View on 16 May 2018.
Street photography is the observation of juxtaposition and humour, capturing the quirky moments of life in an everyday urban environment. It depicts the relationship between people v. architecture and how they live in and use the space.
You can see Filip’s Best in Show, runners up and honourable mentions at our Festival 17-19 May and on our Facebook page.
