Above is one of the photographs from my series ‘Nachtansichten’ which I submitted for this year’s Canon Grand Prix (category ‘stad en straat’) organized by focus magazine. As my series made it through the first selection round, I was invited to a portfolio review day. there I had the chance to present my work personally to the jury. A few days later I received the news that I was one of the four semi-finalists.
After an inspiring meetup with the other three candidates and jury member Ahmet Polat, we had one week time to produce a new series as a follow-up on the submitted work. I chose to continue with night photography so this meant several late night wanderings through my city during the last few days… I am finalizing my series at the moment, you can see a first result below.
