We speak to 2nd Runner Up Anja Filippini #London #photography #londonphotofestival

The London Photo Festival is extremely well-conducted and has a welcoming feel, all thanks to the founders who are very kind and accommodating. I especially liked the tasteful presentation of photographers’ work, and the simplicity of the venue itself. The high standard of this Festival is reflected in the quality of printing and framing as well. Being both affordable and well-visited, I believe it provides amateur as well as professional photographers with the perfect opportunity to get great exposure at low cost.

1st Runner Up Guy Needham #Auckland #photography #London #londonphotofestival #Ethiopia

Guy Needham

Hamar Green

Turmi, Lower Valley of the Omo, Southern Ethiopia

In 2015-2016 Guy Needham spent time in Southern Ethiopia to take portraits that can be interpreted as cultural crossings. Written on the faces of those who posed is a mix of suspicion and acceptance, a personification of tourism versus exploitation. In this young man’s hand is a borkoto, the traditional seat of the Hamar.

Biography:

Guy Needham is a New Zealand photographer who focuses on tribal cultures. His work has appeared in National Geographic Traveller, Lonely Planet, AFAR and the Royal Photographic Society. He has exhibited in the UK, US, Japan, the Balkans and New Zealand.

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

Henry Rice

Osaka

Japan

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.

We are delighted to announce our judge for next month’s Festival! @photopositive #photography #London

We’ll be joined by David Newton,  a professional photographer and filmmaker with a love for the outdoors, travel and natural world. He’s known for his versatility and ability to tackle most subjects with a minimum of fuss. He’s used by some of the biggest brands in the imaging industry (Canon, SanDisk, Manfrotto, Lastolite) as a brand ambassador because of his imagery and because of his ability to teach and present to audiences.  You can see more of David’s work here.
