The winning images of the first annual juried photography awards hosted by All About Photo will be exhibited at the Jules Maeght Gallery in San Francisco in less than a month! The ten international jurors (Julia Fullerton-Batten, Sandrine Hermand-Grisel, Frank Horvat, Ann Jastrab, Ed Kashi, Jules Maeght, Klavdij Sluban, Keiichi Tahara, Ami Vitale, and Cara Weston) viewed and scored nearly 5,000 images for this inaugural competition. As one of the jurors, I was overwhelmed not only by the number of submissions, but also by the quality of the submissions. There were so many dynamic images from around the world that it was difficult to choose only 5 for top honors.
Simona Bonanno from Italy won fifth place with her photograph from her ongoing series, Aboard: a visual journey which witnesses the fascinating anonymity of passengers and crew members living on the temporary small, brilliant cities on the sea that are the cruise ships.
The Jules Maeght Gallery will be exhibiting these 5 award winning photographs along with monitors* playing many of the highest scoring pictures from the jurors’ merit gallery. Come view these powerful photographs for yourself at the opening reception on May 19th.
