Best of Show Exhibition and Party
2013 International Photography Awards Best of Show
Hosted by: Splashlight, One Hudson Square, 3rd Floor 75 Varick Street, 3rd Floor, NY.
Free With rsvp to: firstname.lastname@example.org The 45 winning images from the 2013 competition were curated by Susan Baraz.
Ms. Baraz remarked, “The great images in this show prove what a dynamic world the "photo community" embraces. Works from all over the globe are united in a common language, that of a captured, personal vision. The subjects and ideas are diverse, but they're not challenged by one being more incredible than another. All are equally powerful in their own right. That's the beauty and wonder of photography itself. The world can take lessons.”
The 2013 Best of Show Photographers are: Jisca van Beveren, Leslie Hall Brown, Marina Cano, Fabrizio Cestari, Yukari Chikura, Angelo Cirrincione, Gabriele Croppi, Souvid Datta, Patricia Dinu, Brian Driscoll, Steven Friedman, Alexey Furman, Glenna Gordon, Lucy Snowe Henry, Lucia Herrero, Buck Holzemer, John Huet, Aaron Huey, Tommy Ingberg, Goran Jovic, Brooks Kraft, Wai Shun Wilson Lee, Nicky Loh, JM Lopez, Christopher Malcolm, Lauren Marsolier, Maysun, Jakub Ochnio, Donna Pinckley, Fausto Podavini, Espen Rasmussen, Joel Redman, Morten Rygaard, Bertram Schiller, Paul Souders, Ilona Szwarc, Viktor Sykora, Boon Kah Tan, Vassilis Tangoulis, Sebastiano Tomada, Richard Tuschman, Annelie Vandendael, Raina+Wilson, Chong Kok Yew and Alessandro Zulberti.from.
