伦敦传媒学院学生入围2012年索尼世界摄影奖

 

伦敦传媒学院学生,来自巴西的 Thamyres Matarozzi 入围2012年索尼世界摄影比赛学生组10强,成为6大洲进入该比赛最后阶段的参赛者之一。她的作品记录了玻利维亚南部盐碱沙地因连日暴雨而变成泽国,波光粼粼,如镜般,闪耀在荒漠之中,蔚为壮观;之后数日,又因干旱,荒漠重回旧貌,天地造化,弥散于时空交错间。摄影师手中神器,将这一罕见的奇观,瞬间定格,传承永恒,融会贯通于俳句诗对时光穿梭的哲学描绘之中,自然天成。

 

London College of Communication (LCC) photography student Thamyres Matarozzi is one of ten finalists from across six continents shortlisted for the 2012 Sony World Photography Awards Student Focus competition, the most prestigious photography award for students. Her image entitled Salar de Uyuni is based on the philosophy of the haiku poem – depicting a ‘fleeting moment’, or ‘the decisive moment’.

“The photograph shows a salt desert in the south of Bolivia”, she says. “The desert was flooded due to a heavy rain storm which happened a few days earlier. This is a rare phenomenon as a desert has a very dry climate. The rain in such places only happens once every few years. It was a very special and unique spectacle. Once the salt was dry the translucent mirror that surrounded us was gone. However, thanks to photography we can share and be amazed by such beauty again and again.”

Thamyres, 25, came to London from Brazil with a BA in Cinema to study on the ABC Diploma in Photography at LCC. She says: “I’m delighted to be shortlisted. I've always been passionate about images. Being able to freeze a moment is quite something.”

She now has just a month to complete the second challenge, to produce a series of images on the theme of ‘Your world in colour’. Meanwhile her work will be exhibited as part of World Photo, London at Somerset House. The overall winner will be announced at the Sony World Photography Awards ceremony at London’s Park Lane Hilton Hotel on 26 April 2012, and will receive 45,000 Euros worth of Sony digital imaging equipment for their institution.

Professor Sandra Kemp, Head of College at LCC, says: “LCC is very proud that our student Thamyres Matarozzi has been shortlisted for such a prestigious award. She follows many fine photographers including Rankin and Tom Hunter who have learned their trade at the College.”

Student Focus has established itself as the world’s most high profile student photography award and is open to universities worldwide that run a photography programme. The shortlist was selected by a prestigious judging panel comprising World Photography Organisation (WPO) members indulging: Carl de Keyser Photographer and Co-Founder & Director of the XYZ Photography Gallery; Sarah Toplis Commissioning Editor for Young Tate and Virginia Morrison Executive Director of the Society for Photographic Education.
