Leica Oskar Barnack Awards 2013 finalists

Congratulations to Fabio Bucciarelli and Javier Arcenillas for being selected as finalists in this year’s Leica Oskar Barnack Awards. Both photographers are past KLPA Winners. As much as the conflict, drugs and abuse stories need to be told and brought to the world’s attention, one cannot hide from seeing a set of beautifully photographed series of the simple human condition, that is, exploration, companionship, home, and longing that this year’s winner Evgenia Arbugaeva’s portfolio, “Tiksi, comprises.

Personally, I also liked My Doll and Me by Ilona Szwarc for it’s strangeness and surreal compositions.
