Editor’s comment: Emanating from a city out of sight, here we see light pollution rendered as something beautiful and iridescent, almost like the Northern Lights. Now that our cities never sleep, it’s a phenomenon blamed for compromising health, disrupting ecosystems and spoiling aesthetic environments, and here Miltiadis asks us to reflect on that, while producing something aesthetically goregeous in its own right.

Editor’s comment: Motherhood in the most severe of environments. What works so brilliantly here is the natural, ochre palette and the juxtaposition of tenderness with harshness – humanity distilled to its basic elements of compassion and survival. The mother’s expression to seems to capture it all – a love, a weariness – and it’s absolutely compelling.

“Pink Lake is located at Hutt Lagoon near Kalbarri, Western Australia.”

Editor’s comment: In this fascinating aerial shot, it’s almost impossible to believe that these colors emanate from nature. They looks more like thick layers of oil paint built up across an artist’s canvas. It’s a reminder that the natural world can still surprise us quite wonderfully.
