“A photographer must choose a palette as painters choose theirs.” – Joel Sternfeld
Life is a stream of color. Red, blue, yellow, and a billion pigments in between! We are looking for color-inspired photographs…literally and figuratively. A scene, a detail, a narrative or mood. A single tone or a technicolor daydream.
Urban street scenes, portraits, travel adventures, landscapes, editorial, conceptual, still life… Color our lives.
Judge: Richard Mosse
Richard Mosse has developed a body of work that is both unabashedly aesthetic whilst simultaneously fraught with political and ethical implications. Throughout his work, Mosse subverts weaponized photographic technologies, using them to confront the viewer and refresh documentary forms. His latest work, Incoming, was made in response to the mass migration crisis unfolding across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Mosse has won both the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize and the Prix Pictet and has represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale.
