La plataforma de fotógrafos Lens Culture ha hecho públicos los resultados de su prestigioso concurso dedicado a la fotografía de retratos. 39 “talentosos fotógrafos” de los cinco continentes que han resultado elegidos por un jurado de expertos del concurso de fotografía LensCulture Portrait Awards 2018 que este año ha celebrado su quinta edición.

Si el gran Richard Avedon dijo una vez que “las caras son los libros de nuestra experiencia”, para la organización del concurso las fotografías que os vamos a enseñar demuestran que “la gama casi infinita de posibilidades contenidas en la forma humana”. Entre los premiados de la categoría Series podemos destacar al ganador, el holandés Robin de Puy con su proyecto ‘Randy’ con poderosas imágenes en blanco y negro (como la de portada) que muestran a un niño muy especial que vive en un área remota del desierto de Nevada.

Como siempre os dejamos con las fotos más destacadas de los ganadores de las distintas categorías y os remitimos a su página web para ver todas las imágenes (merecen la pena).

Segundo puesto: 'Boko Haram Strapped Suicide Bombs to Them' de Adam Ferguson (EE.UU)

Lensculture Portrait Award 2018 8 “They said to me, ‘Are you going to sleep with us, or do you want to go on a mission?’” Aisha, age 14, stands for a portrait on September 21, 2017. Like all the girls portrayed in this series, Aisha was kidnapped by Boko Haram, then assigned a suicide bombing mission. After she was strapped with explosives, she found help instead of blowing herself and others up.

Julia Fullerton-Batten (Reino Unido)

Lensculture Portrait Award Juror Picks 2018 16 Ophelia. During preparatory research for my “Thames” project, I was delighted to discover that Hogsmill River is a tributary of the Thames. I decided this justified including the very moving story of the creation of Millais’ painting in the project. John Everett Millais’ famous painting of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, hanging in the Tate Gallery, London, has long been one of my favourite works of art. Ophelia was a noblewoman and the love interest in Shakespeare’s play “Hamlet.” © Julia Fullerton-Batten. Juror’s Pick, LensCulture Portrait Awards 2018
Lensculture Portrait Award Juror Picks 2018 5 The Race Box. The River Thames is a favoured location for internationally renowned boat races, not only the annual University Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge but also “The Great River Race” which runs for 21.6 miles from London Docklands to Ham in Surrey. This race attracts several hundred crews from all over the globe. Every year, yachting and rowing clubs line the banks of the river. Every day of the week, and especially on the weekends, yachtsmen and rowers can be seen enjoying their hobby, whatever the weather. © Julia Fullerton-Batten.

Felipe Jacome (Ecuador)

Lensculture Portrait Award Juror Picks 2018 14 The mangroves of the Cayapas Mataje Reserve are some of the tallest in the world. The roots and branches of the trees grow in unpredictable shapes and forms. Amidst the trees, children as young as nine years old pick shells to contribute to their families’ income.

Lensculture Portrait Award Juror Picks 2018 6 Efraín goofs around with the black shells he just picked in the mangrove. He has five brothers and sisters, one of whom also picks shells with him. Even though black shells are a culinary delicacy in Ecuador, shell pickers are only paid 8 cents per shell. On average, pickers will find between 50 and 100 shells in a day’s work, 2013. © Felipe Jacome. Juror’s Pick, LensCulture Portrait Awards 2018
