For this 13th edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for submissions of works of art that explore composition and form as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic, be it pure visual formalism or in support of a thematic objective.
We chose twenty-five photographers (from 11 different countries) for their different approach to the idea of Shapes. Their work is diverse: documentary, architecture, nudes, still life, abstractions... and use different techniques & perspectives but each one showcases a unique point of view.
Selecting the winners was certainly not an easy task, but in the end we hope you will all enjoy this collection of photographs.
The Winner of AAP Magazine 13 Shapes is JP Terlizzi (USA) with his project "The Good Dishes"
The Second Place Winner is Wendel Wirth (USA) with her series project "This is the Land"
The Third Place Winner is Klaus Lenzen (Belgium) with his series "Architecture Minimal"
