The Hipstography Awards 2014 – The Ceremony

By on February 8, 2015


From Richard Koci Hernandez to Mohsen Chinehkesh
for his portfolio "Street Photography Marathon"


Concerning his portfolio: "It's absolutely incredible that Mohsen Chinehkesh was able to capture all the images in his portfolio — Street Photography Marathon— in a 24 hour period. For me, his images are often layered with more than a single area of focus, adding to an almost theatrical status. There is a great many things at play on the stage that he reveals to us. There is emotion, shadows, harsh light and something unspeakable— something lurking—something hopeful and bright, like colors, smells, sound. For me a transcendence off the screen, something visceral. His portfolio moved me in the direction of wanting more— a feeling of something left on the table—something unexplored, something more. Yes, more. It's the beginning to an opus— it's the opening paragraph to a visual masterwork."

"On Saturday March 22 2014, I captured the streets of Tehran for 24 hours non-stop as part of a global street photography project called 'The 24 Hour Project'. The aim of this project is to document the human condition in multiple cities during one single day: 900 street photographers in 312 cities from 72 countries on 6 continents took part in this street photography marathon, where every photographer shares one photo per hour during a 24 hour day capturing the essence, complexity and state of humanity worldwide.
A project of this type could be a lot of fun but also quite challenging for any photographer. One of the biggest challenges is the lack of time: since you have to share one photo per hour, there is not much time to spend on editing your photos. I used Hipstamatic Oggl exclusively on this project because it helps me to achieve my desired result in next to no time and, unlike Hipstamatic Classic, it gives me the ability to reconsider the lens, film and framing of the photograph.
