    1. prize

    Angela Merkel

    Happy to announce that I have been awarded the first prize at Germany’s annual Rückblende 2014 awards for political photography for my image of Angela Merkel at the Chancellor’s office in Berlin.

    In the newspaper die tageszeitung, it has been called a manifesto of power. The piece in die tageszeitung continues to describe Angela Merkel as standing in the midst of uncertainty, occupying a central position: with a clear head, knowledgeable, and keeping her distance. Those attributes, the text continues, are not only characteristics of Angela Merkel, but should be at the core of political photography in order to provide act as a compass in a precise and clear manner.
