#1 Professional Photographer Of The Year: Exquisite Beauty By Cheraine Collette
Worldwide only one in approximately 20.000 is born with albinism. In some African communities, people with albinism are seen as special and are even believed to have supernatural powers. However, not all attitudes toward people with albinism are positive. In many African countries, people with albinism face widespread discrimination and prejudice. In most cases, they are even the targets of violent attacks.
Many African people with albinism are working to raise awareness about their condition and combat the discrimination they face and try to change negative attitudes to create a more accepting society for all. The exquisite beauty and strength of these individuals are truly inspiring, and their stories deserve to be told and celebrated.
#2 Amateur Fine Art Photographer Of The Year: Digital Spirituality By Nicolas Bigot
The practice of yoga on the one hand, robotics and artificial intelligence on the other hand, two very contemporary fields that everything opposes or at least that nothing binds.
In the continuity of my personal project The Robot Next Door and my reflections on the hypothetical place that synthetic beings could take in our everyday world, I push my questions on the interpretation that these machines could have on the notions of body physical, mind and consciousness.
How could the ideas of spirituality and meditations be interpreted and translated for a thinking machine?
Can taking care of your own body and finding a mental balance be understood by a simulation of autonomous human intelligence?
Questions that I illustrate through a small series of images showing mechanical characters trying to ape humans during experimental sessions in a kind of algorithmic introspection.
