From Daniel Berman to Leona Wong
For her portfolio "The Moments – Hong Kong"

jury_daniel Daniel Berman is a photographer and filmmaker with a background as a producer/director of music & nature programs for television. He brings a lifelong passion for rhythm and the natural world to his imagery. Daniel is the founder of the Mobile Photography Awards, the world’s largest competition for mobile phone photography and art.

Concerning Leona Wong's portfolio: "Ms. Wong's set immediately, and effortlessly, transports me directly to this empty place where the things she finds and shows us come alive. I am engrossed in her stories of these Hong Kong streets. There is an eerie silence in these photos, very few people, and when we do see people, they are tiny in the frame, dwarfed by the monotonous and functional architecture. We see empty rooms, shadows, decayed walls, the clutter left behind, the clock announcing...who knows what time it really is? Where is everyone? I forgot I was even looking at a B&W series, which for me is a clear indication that the photographer has made the right choice of presentation."

"I like street photography and always would like to express the life and culture of cities. I wish to share the views through eyes from photography.

Leona Wong

    Wow – what a great treat – reviewing these portfolios and images. I am inspired to experiment more with Hipsta – I appreciate the purity and experimental philosophy that is Hipsta’s foundation. Hipsta seems to demand a thorough grounding in composition while challenging the user with becoming knowledgeable of the myriad combinations and investigating “what works with what”….kudos to all the artists and jury.
