We hear from the winner of Art Gemini’s photography category….

My name is Chiara and I’m an Italian photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. After completing a Bachelor in Business Administration and an Estate Agent licence, I decided I needed more creativity in my life and I took up photography at the New York Institute of Photography.

My first ‘important’ exhibition was through the London Photo Festival, which gave me the HUGE possibility to show my work and the confidence I still needed to take my photography up to a more professional level.

About the image I named “Uno”: it took a lot to take the right shot! It was taken at the Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, which is always overcrowded. I was inspired by the simplicity of the whole scene, loved the shapes, lines and shadows, the natural light. But I also wanted to photograph only ONE person (from this the name ‘Uno’) possibly in black going towards the white statue, to give the image a twist of mystery as well. Which took a lot of time spent in there everyday for a whole week to capture the perfect image.

I entered the Art Gemini Prize competition as a challenge, almost for fun, and I never ever expected to be shortlisted! But I got in and from there everything went so quickly and I won the first prize. I could not believe it, I still can’t and I’m still amazed!

I would definitely advise people to enter this competition, but not only this one. Any chance to show your work, is a door that opens! Take any chance, but be selective about the competitions you enter, there are many non-serious competitions out there as well.

And I will for sure be back to the London Photo Festival in May! I could not imagine a better place to show my work to people in a very professional and yet relaxed way. The London Photo Festival gives you a chance others don’t. It gave me possibilities, challenges and lots of exposure.

The Art Gemini exhibition is on until the 7th February 2014 at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery  2A Conway Street, London W1T 6BA
