In what has been an incredibly rewarding 13 months since entering my first ever awards in May 2018 — the icing on the cake was last week being announced the overall Fine Art category winner of the 2019 Px3 – Prix de la Photographie Awards, Paris.
A selection from my series, “Ordered Abstraction” was elected the winner of the Fine Art category, after being awarded Gold in Fine Art Landscape and Silver in Nature/Earth.
‘Ordered Abstraction’ is a collection of aerial landscapes exploring the unintended visual and environmental impact that humans have on the landscape. Captured above remote parts of Western and South Australia from the vantage point of various aircraft, The series communicates the environmental impact of mining, extraction and aquaculture in a way that captures attention through colour and form. Each location evokes unique forms of unintentional order coinciding with an element of abstraction, requiring an increased level of engagement from the viewer to elicit the image’s narrative.
The celebration of the awards concludes with an exhibition of category winners at Espace Beaurepaire in Paris, from Tuesday 9th till Sunday 14th of July, 2019. The 13th Px3 winners exhibition will be exhibited alongside the curated exhibition “State of the World” with the opening night set for July 9.
