Linelle Deunk - Gold

It’s remarkable that it’s possible to score so high in a 2015 contest with classical photography. This is the winner by a large margin. The series has a beautiful use of light, and precise hues of black and white on the people’s skin. It’s black and white photography done very well. Colour photography would have distracted from the beautiful and precise forms and lines.
The combination of portrait and landscape photography works well: they show where the people in the portraits are living, and as a viewer you feel like you’ve been there, too. As a whole, the series has a timeless quality. This is photography from a long tradition. Yet, since black and white photography is regaining popularity, the series is also very much part of 2015 – it sets the standard.
