Previous winner – Justine Tjallinks

 

“Life Framer has given me the opportunity to showcase my work on the international stage. I had the privilege of showing one of my series both online and in an exhibition, which was fantastic exposure and within a few days of the exhibition I had received serious interest from potential buyers. Several of these have already led to sales” – Justine

Justine Tjallinks’ series ‘Nude’ was selected by Brian Paul Clamp, the owner and director of the ClampArt gallery in New York.  Nude explores the duality between the vulnerability and strength within oneself. The soft colour palette represents the vulnerability, whilst the strength and determination is found in the body language.

“Albinism in humans is characterized by the absence of pigment in the skin, hair, and/or eyes. Portraits of individuals affected by the disorder bring to mind celebrated photographers such as Tanyth Berkeley and Pieter Hugo.  Nonetheless, Justine Tjallinks brings an aesthetic and approach all her own to her portrayal of a beautiful young woman with albinism.  The images are sophisticated, polished, and powerfully disarming.” – Brian Paul Clamp.
