By on February 3, 2018


From Victoria Will

To Claire Felicie for her series "Renascença"


Concerning her series: "Claire Felicie gets a Special Award for Portraiture. She not only engaged with her subjects, but then took the time to set up a moment and make a deliberate image. The series is successful and, despite being an outsider looking in, she very much feels like she connected to each person and is on the inside. Well done!"

"In 2014, I stayed with the Xukuru Indians in Pernambuco, Brazil, for 5 weeks. One of the reasons I visited them was because I am fascinated by the re-identification of the indigenous peoples and the Xukuru are among them. After five centuries of repression by the colonizers, who violently repressed their culture and religion, the Xukuru are in the process of reviving and restoring what has been lost.
I have photographed 300 individual Xukuru with my iPhone, and I used only the Hipstamatic app. I chose the Tinto 1884 beforehand, because I wanted to emphasize this ambivalence: this mix of the modern with the traditional; the old with the new, and by doing so, raise the question: What is authentic? What is fake? Is this ‘re-identification’ possible or is their ‘authentic’ culture definitely and irreversibly lost? Or are these people creating a new kind of identity; fit for the 21st century?"

From Chris Hornbecker

To Anita Elle for her combo #525


Concerning her series: "She shoots these with a fast relaxed feel, the subtle slight twist or angles keeps things from feeling too precious. The motion from the Tachman lens and the tones of the Blackeys IR provide a wonderful dreamlike platform for this series. These quick moments offer a glance into a scene that leaves you wanting to know more about each story."
