We’d like to thank each of our finalists for their excellent work which made choosing a winner extremely difficult and thank everyone for their help, support and submissions to what’s been a fantastic opportunity to support and fund street photography.
Take a look at Jack Simons’s ‘Through a Glass Darkly’ entry here
Competition judge, Peter Dench thought “The winning photographs by Jack Simon teased a tale of reality remade, delivered with strong composition and colours that startle the retina”.
Whilst, fellow judge James Dodd felt “It was extremely hard to choose a winner – all the work of the finalists was fantastic.Jack’s proposal and decision to use reflected surfaces and windows to create a layering effect in his images was an extremely unique approach to remaking reality. The result was some brilliant images which will hopefully be the start of a fantastic body of work. I look forward to seeing how Jack can develop the project further with the help of the funding the competition win brings.”
Here’s what Jack had to say on winning the Reality Remade competition:
“Having seen the strong entries of the other finalists, I am excited and humbly surprised to have won.
It was a fun and challenging project – especially knowing all other finalists used the same camera phone. I found the Xperia ray easy to use and was impressed by the quality of the images. I’ve even been using it whilst jogging both as a camera and a media player which I hope to develop a new street photography series around!
I would like to thank the Street Reverb team and Xperia Studio for running this competition.”
We would also like to congratulate Marcos Bauza who is our community winner, for his ‘Nice Shot’ project. The community vote was extremely close with only 38 points separating Marcos and the next photographer!
A big thank you goes to Xperia Studio for making this competition possible.
If you missed it in December, we also made a short film about the project with Peter Dench:
