Circe | Bernd Schirmer (Amateur/Student)
Bernd has based her concept on Greek mythology, reviving Circe (or Kirke), the ancient Greek sorceress from the myths of Homer’s Odyssey.

Each element incorporated in the picture carries deep interpretations of the photographer, waiting for someone who bears similar beliefs and ideas.
As the Photographer of the Year, Bernds’ work is definitely up there with the best of the industry, with limitless room for improvement. Being at the peak isn’t easy, and it definitely will only get harder from here with the inspiration other photographers have obtained through the success of “Circe”.
