Photography graduate shortlisted for Lensculture Emerging Talent Contest 2014

Photography 9 October 2014

Eugenio Rosso, Westminster graduate with an MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism, is one of 50 emerging talents to be chosen from thousands of entries and 94 countries for LensCulture’s Emerging Talent 2014 contest.

The 50 chosen photographers covered a range of topics in their submissions, and utilized a variety of photographic techniques, from antiquated processes to smartphone cameras, from the creative re-use of anonymous found photos, to elaborately staged narrative fictions, from hard-hitting documentary to heart-lifting poetic reveries.

LensCulture comments: "Announcing these 50 Emerging Talents is just the beginning of worldwide exposure for these photographers. LensCulture will feature these winners on our web platform and social media networks — reaching an audience of over 600,000. Plus, we will exhibit all of the winners at a gala exhibition in Barcelona, and all will be printed in our museum-quality annual: LensCulture Emerging Talents 2014. The printed book will be distributed to each of our LensCulture Insiders — a global group of many of the most influential people in the world of contemporary photography. All winners will be part of a traveling show that will be projected at festival screenings around the world — first stops: Buenos Aires and Tokyo!
