#1 Photographer Of The Year: A Crack In The Mirror By Cristina Fontsare
The intention of my project is to have a look at childhood, puberty and adolescence through the annual practice of photographing the same girls every year.I am interested in those moments of transition between one evolutionary stage and another,highlighting the imaginary world of childhood that is invisible to to the adult gaze, the beauty and fragility of puberty, the lights and shadows of growth, the adaptation to the new incipient subjectivity and the psychological changes that will come and that will distance you from your closest environment:the family, where everything begins and ends.
#2 Best New Talent Of The Year: Coming Through By Ayanah George
This series inspired by the art of Kehinde Wiley is my transformation in creating work that represents my style. The concept of “coming through” is represented by various double exposures, an allegory to something that was covered and revealed. The photos are meant to document, uplift and highlight women of color, representing them as majestic and beautiful. In the past I created work that did not represent me. As I reflected on other aspects of life it occurred to me that I was (and possibly still am) afraid to show all of myself. As I begin to open up, I invite others to do the same.
