Fine Art Photography is photography that combines nature, portraiture and many other photography types and it details the artist’s vision and approach to capture what the artist’s sees. The following observant photographers are some of the many who has documented their vision for the world to indulge in beautiful art.
HARVEST | Kazuki Watanave
Kazuki Watanave was invited to an event of Honey Wine called ‘Mead’ by a beekeeper and dear friend, Eric Bossick who was the subject of his artwork. Driven by the memory of his grandfather doing beekeeping when he was a child, Bossick decided to harvest honey and the raw material to make mead. This in turn prompted Watanave to recall the fond memories he once shared with his grandfather which consequently lead him to photograph this scenario, specifically the harvest with other-wordly close-up shots of the honey. The series of photographs represents a friendship between two close friends and the different ways in honoring a fond memory once shared with their grandfathers which was a Category Winner under Fine Art Photography – Beehive.
Maternity | Nimi Roy
A beautiful subject, a woman, a mother and the miracle she carries, clad in gold specks is visibly shown behind a dark sensuous red to highlight both mother and baby. Rightfully titled, ‘Maternity’, Roy presents the circle of life, the joy of motherhood, the responsibility of carrying a life and a memory that many would relate to. The image also portrayed a valiant strength as the mother carries the child for 9 months and continues to sustain the baby with milk and nurture. Roy’s magical depiction of maternity was a Platinum Winner under the category of Fine Art Photography – Maternity.
Let There Be Light | Luka Vunduk
Luka Vunduk invites its audience to step into a Slovenian karst fairy tail in Slovenia where the wildest of imaginations immediately comes into mind. With endless caves, underground rivers, intermittent lakes and natural bridges is more than enough to give the audience the background to their whimsical fantasy! One can almost smell the moss lingering in the air, the sound of the rushing river and the cloudy mist masking the air to conceal a wonderment of nature and mythical beings in hiding. Vunduk pressed that the sun rays dancing in the light was the finishing touch that made this photograph unforgettable as it a delight to the six senses of the human body to which was awarded a Gold Medal under the category of Fine Art Photography – Landscape.
