The Hipstography Awards 2017 – The Ceremony

By on February 3, 2018


To Marco Gianfranco Spampanato for his combo #580


Concerning his series: "While the pastel-colored houses of Boccadasse are beautiful, its Marco's understanding of color and his choice of gear that makes these photos so special."


Combo #580 (Marco Gianfranco Spampinato)

Lens:  Stavros 
Film:  Cheshire 
Flash:  Apollo 


"Boccadasse is a picturesque village with pastel-colored houses clinging to each other and encircling a small bay, even though it's completely surrounded by the city. It has remained almost unchanged over time, as one might have seen one or two centuries ago, a fact that made it one of the most famous tourist attractions in Genoa. This place has not simply been preserved for tourists, instead it is a lively and vital village where fishermen continue their ancient activities."
Marco Gianfranco Spampinato



From Mario Estrada

To Sebastian Oskar Kroll for his combo #579


Concerning his series: "The story feels very cool and like a time capsule of Berlin Culture."
Mario Estrada

"Berlin shouts in your face! It shows its wounds but never forgets to smile. You will only get to see it when you look twice though. Berlin challenges you and the pictures you take of it; she will question you if your pictures are too exaggerated or too dull. Berlin never grows up. Simply because it doesn't want to. And it doesn't need to. Berlin is colorful. Berlin is dirty. Berlin breaks down walls. Berlin is the third gender. Berlin is Berlin. More "Mutterstadt" than "Vaterland". Dear Berlin, Ich liebe Dich - I love you!

This Combo (Tellusborg) was created by Marc Zetterblom. Thanks for that! I'd love to use it in Classic mode. Hopefully Hipstamatic will enable us to do so one day."
Sebastian Oskar Kroll
