“Frozen Mobile Home” by Greg Lecoeur, Animals in their Environment, “Icebergs are massive and mysterious habitats, which are dynamic kingdoms that support marine life. As they swing and rotate slowly through polar currents, icebergs fertilize the oceans by carrying nutrients from the earth. They are also responsible for the development of the phytoplankton and inﬂuence the carbon cycle by sequestering carbon dioxide from the air. They also shelter big animals such as Crabeater seals, that spend the entire year on the ice pack.” Photo of the Year, 2020 Siena International Photography Awards
Преди няколко години започнахме това фотографско приключение с идеята да обвържен град като Сиена с фотофестивал и конкурс, а именно Siena International Photo Awards. През тези шест години от самото начало до днес, проектът се превърна в дългоочаквано събитие, оценено от цял свят. Този успях се потвърждава и от количеството фотографии, които всяка година получаваме със заявка за участие на международно известни автори, избрали да допринесат за нашия проект, като по този начин ни поставят сред най-големите фотографски конкурси в света. Щастливи сме, че нашата мечта беше подкрепена от самото начало, както от местните власти в Сиена, така и от партньорите, без които не бихме могли да започнем това приключение“, сподели арт директорът и основател на фестивала – Лука Вентури.
Ние ви показваме нашата селекция от феноменални фотографии, които ни плениха и се надяваме да подействат по същия начин и на вас!
“Kick It” by Giancarlo Staubmann, Street Photography “I took this picture at Marina Julia, a small seaside town on the Adriatic Sea. I adopted a shooting point from the bottom to go unnoticed.

“Unseen Colors” by Thomas Vijayan, The beauty of Nature “Flamingos are found in millions in Kenya. The lake’s abundance of algae used to attract a vast quantity of flamingos that famously lined the shore. After many years with little water, in 2013, the lake received an alarming increase in water levels that led to the migration of flamingos to Lake Bogoria in search of food.” 2020 Siena International Photography Awards
“Dandelion” by Bence Mate, The beauty of Nature, “When I first saw this scene in my garden, I instantly knew that I was going to capture it.

“Taboo” by Fattah Zinouri, Fascinating faces and characters “I took this photo inside my home studio in Iran while I was working on a movie project about Afghan immigrants living in Iran. It was the first time that I witnessed in person someone wearing a burka. What struck me immediately upon seeing this woman was that I couldn’t see any part of her body except the soles of her feet as she walked. Since I captioned this photo as “Taboo,” the message I am expressing is one of rebellion.” 2020 Siena International Photography Awards
