In collaboration with Art Directors and Creative Directors, Gabriel da Silva and Myriam Lopez, photographer Santi Rodriguez presents the first project for the Oldbaby Collective. Entitled “Urban art renaissance” (above), their entry for the upcoming Photography Annual 2020 serves as an ode to contemporary food waste. Featuring an intriguing set design, with fish and produce on a lush table, lightly covered with spray paint, the Oldbaby Collective took inspiration from classic still life paintings for their newest project. Submitted from Madrid, Spain, the collective demonstrate that using food waste for a photoshoot can be both playful and informative.
For the Photography Annual 2019, Graphis Master Joseph Saraceno won a Silver Award for his entry. Entitled “Anachronism_001” (above), the photoshoot accompanied a six-page story for DLTD magazine, based in Stockholm, Sweden. Taking inspiration from George Orwell’s well-known novel 1984, the photoshoot showcases various elements and symbolic references from the text, such as the glass paperweight and the rope, with the latter alluding to a significant quote from Part 3 of the novel. (You’ll have to read the rest of the novel to understand the symbolism of each featured object). The photoshoot mixes both old and new items, along with natural elements, such as the coordination of light and darkness. By providing a work of mystery and symbolism, Saraceno’s silver-winning entry stands out amongst his vast collection of notable photography.
