Photography Annual 2014 Submission Spotlight:
Caroline Knopf and The Whaling Widow


While the alien beauty starring in photographer Caroline Knopf’s maritime horror study The Whaling Widow could be mourning the loss of an Ahab or Quint at sea, one suspects she’s simply wandered into an empty Andrew Wyeth-style coastal cottage a la Goldilocks, forlorn that there’s only uncooked fish for dinner, searching for an Ambien to get some shuteye.

The Whaling Widow was produced for Four Magazine, a quarterly publication of “beautiful homes, iconic fashion, artistic expression, and diverse culture that dwells within and around the city”. Knopf has also submitted it to our upcoming Photography Annual 2014 competition.

Graphis is always excited to get Caroline Knopf’s submissions. We see intense color control, fascinating angular poses, and focused narrative hooks with a classical compositional approach. These techniques won her gold awards for The Girl Who Fell To Earth, Evening Portrait of Liu, and 29 Palms in our Photography Annual 2013. She also entered Amber Waves that year, and The Crash in our Photography Annual 2012.

Our Photography Annual 2014 competition features the most compelling and influential photography of the year. Prizes consist of gold and platinum awards, with winning entries published in the Photography Annual 2014.
