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

Leonardo small
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.

We speak to Sabine von Breunig 1st runner up in our #architecture #photocontest #photography #London

I am a Berlin-based photographer.  From 2008 – 2011 I had the privilege to join the Masterclass of renown Professor Arno Fischer and in November 2012 my book ‘GEISTERSTADT’ (Ghost Town) was published by Edition Braus /Aufbau Verlag Berlin, which received a nomination of the German ‘Fotobruchpreis’ 2014.

In 2012/2013 I had the opportunity to photograph in the former Headquarters of the American Forces in Berlin Clayallee.

FINAL WALK HEADQUARTERS OF THE AMERICAN FORCES IN BERLIN 1945-1994

The headquarters of the American Forces in Berlin was one of the most important centres of the Cold War. Here, the most important decisions were made, Presidents were welcomed and negotiations with Diplomats took place – and the Luftbrücke was commanded. After nearly fifty years of residency, the USA handed the headquarters back to the Germans when the troups left Berlin in 1994. The main parts of the area have been lying idle since 1994. In 2011 the area was sold to an investor and transformed into luxury flats. Nearly nothing reminds of the presence of the Americans in Berlin.

 

I entered the competition because I think the London Photo Festival is the place to be right now and I am so very happy being 1st Runner Up of the architectural competition. Thanks to you all and especially to Johnny Kerr – I very much appreciate his comment on my work.

We speak to Frank Machalowski @framafo winner in our #architecture #photocontest #photography #London

I’m Frank Machalowski, born in Berlin and live and work in Leipzig today. After studying Economics in Berlin and applying myself to various trades I work as a freelance photographer and artist since 2011. I first got into photography as a hobby and at the beginning I was mainly into digital photography, but then I started shifting back to film as I found the charming characteristics and atmosphere of film photography to be more fascinating. Today i even develop and print the most of my photos by my own. My major area of interest is the city and its immediate surroundings.
About the image ‘Hanover’:
This photograph is a part of my ongoing series ‘multiexpo’. For this series I photograph landmarks and architecturally interesting buildings as multiple exposures. It launched 2012 in Berlin, my hometown for 40 years, but then I extended this kind of photography to other German and European cities. For this series I use exclusive analogue film material in both dimensions (35mm and 6×6) and only b&w. The building on the picture is the administration building of a major German bank in the inner city of Hanover.
This is the third time that i submitted a photograph to a LPF competition. I love the city of London and I love photography. I travelled last October to London and take some pictures for my series there. A beautiful place for architecture photographing. I think London is becoming more and more important a place for the international photography scene.
