Nikon Photo Contest Profile Information

  • "Tokyo Underground"
By Ayu Watanabe ( @yakuzayu ) / Japan
Nikon Photo Contest 2018-2019
Next Generation Award (photo story) Special Mension 

Story:
I get the feeling that people (especially women) are gradually being materialized, commercialized, and consumed by others and society. It's like they're killing off our actual looks and feelings for the sake of keeping the economy rolling and improving productivity. When we look in a mirror or take selfies, we are producing and consuming our own selves. Even if the outside world rejects my looks or thoughts, nothing can bother me while I'm alone and looking towards myself. When I walk through the town, I see plenty of women constantly checking their appearance. Mirrors are one thing, but the development of ID photo booths, smartphones, and social media makes women painfully aware of how they look every day. It doesn't matter if they're troubled with their looks, personality, or general lifestyle; even if they're trapped in some spiral of self-exacerbation, they can use a smartphone app or some image processing function to transform into their ideal self, materialize that self in the form of a photograph, and obtain a kind of happiness that can't be shared with others. If you take your eyes away from it all for just a bit, you'll see that dozens of media exist proclaiming that appearances that completely differ from yours are ideal, or hear many complaints to deny your own declarations. These women may have lost their confidence, but at the very least I want to praise their diversity and imperfections.

"After hurricane IRMA"
By Valentina Fomina (@fomina_valentina_13 (Valentina F) ) / Russian Federation
The Open Award (photo story)
Special Mention

Story:
Changes in weather often lead to changes in people's way of life. After hurricane IRMA (09.09.2017) residents of Havana (Cuba) took to the streets of the city to see what destruction brought the hurricane. Many people can not get into their homes due to the fact that the sea came out of the banks and flooded the streets and houses. And only the children are enjoying the huge waves of the sea.

"童年(When We Were Children)"
By Nan Wang / China
Next Generation Award(photo story)
Bronze Prize

Story:
Time is a way of traveling. We encounter so many people throughout our life. These people come and go, and there are also many who we must let go of. And that is why I want to leave traces of these encounters as much as I can.

"Secret Artist"
By Rishi J (@__naked_eyes__ ) / India
Next Generation Award(photo story)
Bronze Prize

Story:
There is a proverb that ‘A true artist does not ever stop creating art’,is most appropriate for Baskar. Now he is working as a food delivery boy. Baskar never judges a work with its position, rather he always believes in effort and dedication. Apart from his job, he loves to write poems on current social affairs & he can draw some phenomenal paintings also. Hardly one can know about his artistic identity as he never shows it to the world. ※It is listed as the original.
