Each month we will be holding a photo contest based on various themes. To celebrate our first month we decided to give away some wonderful prizes, including a copy of our special edition book, tote bags & prints. This month's theme was Ethereal Light, we had some incredible entries but eventually we had to choose!
Our first prize winner is photographer Brigita Ercegovic, based in Split, Crotia. Preferring analogue formats for the mood and emotion it brings, her work is nostalgic and intimate, capturing moments of isolation and melancholy. Her first noted exhibition was her solo show in Belgrade in 2008, and has since been presented in several group exhibitions and various publications.
Our second prize winner is twenty-year-old self-taught photographer Chiara Cappetta, based in Bologna, Italy. As a self-confessed shy person, she began to express herself through various forms of art; ballet, piano, drawing, cinema, music... when she received her first camera at ten years old, she decided then that photography would be her chosen form of expression. In March of this year she released her first photographic book, Presente, Un'odissea, which is out now.
Our third prize winner is Hawaii-born multi-media artist and model, AylaRose La'Akea, currently based in San Francisco, California. Although working with various media and formats, her main outlet is analogue photography. With a focus on fine art, portraiture and lifestyle shots, she seeks to convey honest emotion and feeling.
Thank you so much to everyone that entered, details on the September contest will be up on the blog soon!
