Prix Nouvelles écritures de la photographie environnementale
Discovering new perspectives
Since the very first edition, La Gacilly Photo Festival has been committed to the issues of ecology and community. With this award, it highlights emerging talents who explore new ways of sounding the alarm and raising awareness through the medium of photography. Run in partnership with Fisheye Magazine and the Fisheye Gallery, the 7th New Takes on Environmental Photography Award has been bestowed on three winners: Chloé Azzopardi, Alisa Martynova and Maxime Taillez, who express themselves in some distinct and complementary contemporary images.
As privileged witnesses of major environmental and societal upheavals, photographers shape our perception of the environment and very often prompt changes in our behaviour. This award showcases a new generation of photographers bringing a fresh perspective to the issues faced by our society today, irrespective of whether they take an artistic, documentary or journalistic approach.
This year the jury comprised of members of La Gacilly Photo Festival and Fisheye teams, welcomed Teo Becher, photographer and former award winner, as a guest.
