As the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography sees another edition through, Sjoerd Knibbeler, represented by LhGWR at Unseen Photo Fair 2015 is announced the winner of the Grand Prix du jury Photographie.
From the 23rd to the 27th of April, Hyères Festival celebrated 30 years of supporting talents in the fields of fashion and photography. Knibbeler, one of the 10 photographers shortlisted from a selection of over 700 entries, delivers visually stunning work that challenges our understanding of the photographic image and its relationship to dynamism and movement in the world. It is through his innovation in this field that he has been chosen by the high-profile photography jury as this year’s winner.
Previous winners of the photography prize include Dutch photographer Anouk Kruithof (1981), represented by Boetzlaer|Nispen at Unseen Photo Fair in 2012, 2013 and 2014; and Lorenzo Vitturi, Unseen's 2014 campaign photographer and represented by Flowers Gallery and Kahmann Gallery at Unseen Photo Fair 2014.
