Photo of November 2021 and first place belongs to:

Racheli Hared

I’m Racheli Hared, photographer from Israel
Love children, they challenge me and take me out of me .
I started shooting and holding a camera almost 3 year including the quarantine and learned how to use it from the guiding book
I had an issue with myself. And it is that my past expiration just gave me a feeling of failure.
I wanted to prove so hard to myself, that I’m valuable.
So I started my way quietly with no one knowing (even not my hubby) I was afraid some words or anything would break me and bother me to build my dream and that’s how I created this image.
This image was created on the blue hour with light on the back and on the front of her and giving the mystery I needed for this.
It proves it all and it means a lot to me.

Second place ex aequo belongs to:

TOMASZ STANKIEWICZ from Portretove Love

My name is Tomek, I was born in 1969 in Warsaw, where I live and create to the present. A chemist and computer scientist by profession, but I have always been interested in arts and crafts. First, metalwork that turned into a passion for jewelry and now also photography, which occupies the first place in my life.
My first adventure with a photo camera started a few years ago as I traveled through far away lands and places on earth, while looking for minerals, precious, and semi-precious gemstones for my jewelry. I was touched by nature’s amazing mineral creations as well as the environments they were found in, stopped in time, their colors, smells, distinct atmosphere, and culture. I wanted to immortalize them. I and my adventures soon gained two four-legged friends of the Alaskan Malamute breed: Princess Soraya and Malakwa Creek Sikko. Watching their behavior and admiring landscapes while taking their walks was a wonderful experience, especially when coupled with the photo camera and taking photos. The magic of photography captured me completely at that time but shortly, I faced another challenge: taking photos to exhibit his art. In mid-2015, I began to seriously think about professional photography. I took photography classes, gained knowledge from online courses, started scheduling photo sessions, and taking many photos. I currently strive to widen my horizons and abilities, continually challenging myself, by always setting and achieving new goals. “Because Life is Beautiful” is my motto.

Thank you very much for the award. My name is Kamila Culwell, I took photography seriously about a year and a half ago, when my son appeared in my life. He is my greatest inspiration. Children’s worlds are full of magic, children are very authentic and sincere, that’s why I love to photograph them. I am learning all the time and looking for my unique style in photo processing. I took this photo inspired by the work of Mariola Glacjar.

Tomasz Pacyna

Thank you for the award. My name is Tomasz and I live in Wolsztyn (Poland) – the city of steam trains. I work as a graphic designer. Photography is my second job, which gives me more artistic freedom than designing graphics for large companies. I deal with both outdoor and (recently) studio photography. The most important things in my works are emotions, mood, colors and the light. I like when the photo tells a story.
