“Displaced” by Jashim Salam (Bangladesh). Photographer of the Year Grand Prize. “Rohingya children watching an awareness film about health and sanitation near Tangkhali refugee camp in Ukhiya.” Shot on iPhone 7.
“Тази година снимките бяха технически впечатляващи и много лични.”
Това споделя Kenan Aktulun, основател на най-големия и престижен конкурс за фотография, заснета с iPhone – iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS). Той също така отбелязва, че независимо дали снимките са направени с iPhone5, iPhone6 или 7 Plus, това, което ги отличава е погледът на фотографа и способността му да създава красив визуален разказ.
Или както твърди един от победителите в предишно издание на конкурса:
“iPhone е като писалка. Добра или лоша, писалката няма да напише стихотворение сама. Но поетът ще го направи”.
Тази година поетите-фотографи са от над 140 държави и представят работата си в 18 категории, побрали от спиращи дъха пейзажи, през репортажни снимки, до проникновени портрети.
Големият победител Яшим Салам е от Бангладеш и спечели голямата награда “Фотограф на годината” с кадър, озаглавен “Displaced” (горе).
