From Chiun-Kai Shih to Cindy Buske
For her portfolio "West Coast Road Trip"

jury_chunky Prolific and talented lensman, editor and creative director, Chiun-Kai Shih, AKA “Chunky” as he’s more affectionately and widely known in the industry, works with some of the most celebrated personalities and brands in fashion, media, and entertainment today. Chunky was discovered in 1988 by the publisher of Conde Nast China, the company responsible for producing GQ and VOGUE’s Taiwan editions, and has since worked with too many people to even begin mentioning here.
Transcending traditional photography mediums, Chunky has collaborated with digital photography company Hipstamatic to create The Chunky Lens, and The Americana Lens for the Hipstamatic iPhone app. Recently, he’s been named Creative Director to Hipstamatic’s leading digital magazine Snap.

Concerning Cindy Buske's portfolio: "I love where she is standing with all these photographs, even the theme is more about nature, but somehow I think she took the viewer further then what the eyes can see, it's actually very emotional, and warm, I love the combinations she chose and the framing is simply beautiful, I can look at these images for a long time and just process many thoughts in my head - Good thoughts! I think Chunky Award should go to Cindy, she rocks!"

"This summer my daughter and I traveled down the West Coast from Northern Oregon to Southern California. Driving slowly along scenic Highways 101 and 1, I captured Hipsta images at every stop. An incredible two week adventure, we stayed everywhere from a posh hotel in San Francisco, to a rather primitive campsite along the ocean in Caspar. We visited so many beautiful places, it was difficult to choose just a handful of photos to represent our trip. Northern California in particular stood out for me as a visual wonder - many of the images included in this portfolio are from Highway 1 where it begins in Northern California, down to Big Sur, just south of San Francisco."

    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.
