"Architect by profession and self-taught photographer, I decided some years ago, combine both disciplines. I have always been interested in the documentation of the territory in its broadest sense; making special mention of architecture, as an identity and cultural symbol.
I found this image by chance driving through Almería and I decided to stop at a half-built building on the side of the road. I started to walk between the concrete pillars, not really knowing what I was looking for... And suddenly, a composition of simple shapes emerged where everything seemed to be in its place. A lapse of the construction process turned into sculpture, a pictorial image of the relationship between human beings and nature in a world of a disturbing and uncertain future".
Second prize "Scaffold"
Author: Carlos González Sánchez (León) · Hospital orderly in León.
Date and location of the photo: April 22,2023 Nuremberg (Alemanya)
Details: Sony DSC-RX100M6 · ISO125 · 134 mm · 1/250 f4.5
" My father was a photographer in Salamanca and, although late, I started with photography and I have not left it. Last year they gave me two awards: The Day of the Museums of the Museo de León and one of the acquisitions of Camarote Madrid. I have always loved architecture and in fact I have several architect friends. A lot of my photography is focused on architecture in some way, and urban photography. That's why I like the contest.
The photograph "Scaffolding" is a clear example of being on the site and at the right time. And although it seems like I'm "buttering up myself", when I shot I told my daughter that she already had the photo that she would send to the architecture competition."
Third prize "AVE"
Author: Carlos de Cos Azcona (Soraluze - Guipuzkoa) · Manufacturing inspector at a cold stamping company and amateur photographer.
Date and location of the photo: Juny 7, 2023 Atxondo (Bizkaia)
Details: Nikon D850 · ISO100 · 175 mm · 1/1600 f2.8 "I like to participate in photography contests, I found out about this contest on a page and I didn't hesitate, the subject is super open.
I opted for this photo because it mixes the latest technologies with the technology of a lifetime, " the human". I also liked the appearance of the sky announcing a storm that arrived a few minutes later, which makes this job much harder."
