Statement from the Jury

FOODPHOTO 2017 Award

With each individual picture, Carmen Troesser manages to lead the viewer into a remarkable world. In some cases the subjects are very minimal and simple, but through her own quiet type of photography, the viewer is afforded the opportunity to discover the photo's subject for themselves.
As the photographer, Carmen Trösser remains in the background and allows the subject to speak for itself. The beauty of the still lifes and details is tremendous, while avoiding becoming too perfect. Life remains the subject without coming across as artificial. Simple, calm, quiet, and never obtrusive. Carmen Troesser puts the subject on display but nothing is forced. The simplest food becomes a timeless work of art.


FOODFEATURE 2017 AWARD:
Maisie Crow's work “Hungry” was the clear winner for everyone on the jury. The pictures fit the topic very clearly. Sequences that told a story on their own, and at the same time documented powerlessness and anguish in the face of illness. Even without the moving images and music/speech, the photos were moving, haunting and unique in themselves (composition, etc.). Photo reportage that could hardly be better.
