Image Name: Just Saving the Planet. Photographer Name: Tim Johnston. Year: 2020.

Image Description: I was wandering around Central London when I came across the UK Student Climate Network blocking Westminster Bridge during a school Climate Strike. It’s an issue that affects us all, and one I care about, so I followed the protest to its end. I wanted to capture the defiance and resolve of the students.

It was a bright day, so I narrowed my aperture and set a fast shutter speed. I decided to convert the picture to black & white to draw attention to the students’ faces and the establishment buildings behind them. These kids are our future, and they are the ones fighting for it.

I hope my picture can make an impact, however small.

Image Name: Pan Katy. Photographer Name: Dmitrii Tulmentev. Year: 2020.

Image Description: It was a warm July evening. I sat in the studio and prepared myself and my Hasselblad for a few experiments - I wanted to see how an old film camera would behave when paired with modern lighting equipment. All well and good, but what should I photograph? Suddenly a girl walked into the studio, and everything fell into place.

Image Name: Graceful. Photographer Name: Manfred Voss. Year: 2020.

Image Description: The small fishing village of Reine in Norway delivers one of the most beautiful views in the Lofoten archipelago. The balance between the cold light of blue hour and the warmth of the well-lit houses was perfect this morning. It was almost windless, resulting in a beautiful reflection of the mountain in the water. I opted for an exposure that balanced the blue hour with the slightly illuminated mountains and the gentle light from the houses.
