"The light emission of fireflies that can only be seen in Japan's limited mountains was shot with comparative synthesis.

The flash of these fireflies is very fast and beautiful.

I look forward to the light of this firefly every year."

San Salvatore

San Salvatore

Gold in Portraiture/Other, Gold in Press/General News, 1st Place winner in Portraiture

"These are the doctors and nurses of the Intensive Care Unit—San Salvatore Hospital in Pesaro, Italy, the city of my birth and where I once again reside, and which from day one has sadly been at the top of the COVID-19 contagion and death charts. I photographed them at the end of their shifts—twelve hours without a break during their fight in an unequal war. In the deep imprints left by their protective masks, I found a symbol of their sacrifice, but above all, I found evidence of the pain, fear, and helplessness of standing before an unknown enemy."

Last Garden Of Eden

Last Garden Of Eden

Bronze in Nature/Underwater
As light pierces through the trees, mystical sunbeams surround a brightly pink colored sea fan. It creates a magical and a surreal underwater forest, teeming with life and colours. Coral reefs are at the forefront of climate change, if we don’t act now they may be lost forever. I want to shed light on the beauty and importance of coral reefs as the underwater forests of our planet.

Way To Get Water

Way To Get Water

Gold in Press/Nature/Environmental

According to United Nations statistics, there are more than 100 countries and regions in the world in need of water for daily use, 43 of which suffer from severe water shortages that threaten the survival of 2 billion people, mainly in Africa and the Middle East, where water is the source of life. In Dry and dry areas, I show people's thirst for water and cherish the imagination, so through this series of photos, remind the world to cherish water resources to protect the environment.

The Irish Travelers, A Forgotten People

The Irish Travelers, A Forgotten People

Gold in Portraiture/Culture, 1st Place winner in Portraiture

These series of images reflect my personal interactions with the Travelers I met at various halting sites, and illegal encampments in Galway and Limerick, outside of Dublin, and at the annual horse fair in Ballinasloe.
I first encountered the Irish Travelers through a photographic trip to Killaloe, County Clare. Although they have a savory reputation for violence and criminal behavior, I found them to be generally friendly, approachable and tragically misunderstood. I think it’s important to document the Travelers as we know them today, to collect a photographic record of a unique people.

Begins A Scar

Begins A Scar

Gold in Fine Art/People, 1st Place winner in Fine Art

Begins a Scar is an art project I created for my galleries to exhibit. The work depicts the hurtful names and labels that are put on people daily. With the new Trump administration came a new breed of person in America that felt they have the right to use these racist slurs and labels to demean anyone that was not WASP. These labels are hurtful to the receiver to the point it breaks down their confidence and morale and often leads to suicide. The Installation was also accompanied by a poem from Poet Lorient, Patricia Smith.

Story Of Tree Family

Story Of Tree Family

Gold in Nature/Trees, Gold in Special/Others “Special”, 1st Place winner in Special

Trees that don't look real (Surreal).

The tree family story of the Sumba sea.

I want to talk through this tree family.

Human beings are hugged by their parents when they are born.

But this tree cannot hug a child born from its roots.

Yet they are happy

They can always look to each other and pray

Modern people are too busy to meet their families.

But don't forget your family like trees that always look at each other and pray.

Murmurations

Murmurations

Gold in Nature/Sky, 1st Place winner in Nature

Starling murmurations form abstract landscapes in the sky in a sublime musical rhythm. Tens of thousands of starlings fly in swooping, intricately coordinated patterns. This ballet is executed as a perfect choreography, the birds manage uncertainty while also maintaining consensus. Starlings accomplish this by paying attention to a fixed number of their neighbors in the flock, regardless of flock density — seven, to be exact. In following this role of seven, the birds are part of a dynamic system in which the parts combine to make a whole with emergent properties — and murmuration results.

Johannes Bosgra (b. 1979, NL) has traveled to the most desolate places on earth from a young age to create his contemplative work, from Antarctica to Alaska. He is selected as GUP New Dutch Photography Talent 2020. Bosgra explores the links between classical music and visual art. He has collaborated with composers and musicians such as Philip Glass, Maarten van Veen, Ralph van Raat, and Feico Deutekom to create gesamtkunstwerk of visual art and classical music. Bosgras work has been exhibited internationally in a.o. Miami, Düsseldorf, Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

Gold in Nature/Flowers
Each Botanical image is a plant that I have grown in my garden. I wanted to produce images that would capture the one essential thing that compelled me to want to look at that plant a second time. Each final image is a combination of both multiple scans and multiple camera data. Some photographs contain over 50 single images.

Waiting For The Tide To Turn

Waiting For The Tide To Turn

Gold in Fine Art/Other

"The Waiting for the Tide to Turn series farcically explores the emotions of disenfranchised people. The images allude to a spectrum of thoughts, feelings, and actions ranging from apathy and subservience to enlightenment and rebellion. The series envisages the realization that individualism is the weakness and only as a collective can they begin to turn the tide.

As the series progresses it becomes less implicit with chronologically ordered events on T-Day (Turning Day). The T-Day image depicts someone more able to cope with the toxic environment rescuing those less equipped to cope.

It was whilst studying photography at the University of Wolverhampton UK that I found my passion for conceptual photography. My work draws on personal experience and a natural inquisitiveness in human behavior.

I construct (often building sets in the studio) a series of work from a concept or I will see images in everyday life that speak volumes to me. Whichever method of construction I use, I intend the images to be multi-layered and engage the viewer thoughtfully and aesthetically."
