Oh my god – I made it to the finals in the annual Urban Picknick Street Photography competition this year! UPSP is – in my opinion – of the heavy institutions of international street photography and I am very proud to be one of 50 street photographers on their list.
If you are into street photography you have to check this top 50 out – this is 100% top notch street.
The image they have chosen is one I shot last year at the beach in Playa de Palma, Mallorca. I did not talk to the girls on the picture, but they are probably from the eastern Europe (or Russia), since they seem to have a culture of standing up on their beaches. A journalist friend of mine told me they do this because of dirty beaches, which sounds plausible to me. :)
Congratulations! Urban Picnic is indeed one of the best sites on this topic and their requirements are not easily met…
Grattis! Många bra bilder där, starkt att komma med bland finalisterna.
Thank you very much, guys. Cheers!
Congratulations well deserved.
Wow, well done and congratulations!
