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! "
