About the photographers

Gregg Segal uses photography to examine culture, identity, behaviour and beliefs. His winning portraiture series, Daily Bread, is a response to the ways in which globalisation is drastically altering our relationship to food. 

Osceola Refetoff is a photojournalist and fine art photographer. His winning landscape series, It’s a Mess Without You, is a survey of man’s presence in the deserts of the American West.

Andrei Farcasanu works with black and white analog photography and small-sized handmade prints. His winning conceptual series, Timeless Interventions, explores and challenges how we understand time and the present.

About the host
