2nd prize - Zilveren Camera - Price for Storytelling
I ended on the second place for the Prize for Storytelling. I am grateful to be in this top three! So exciting and happy that the tales are heard!
A small quote from the jury rapport: “The stylized form and content are beautifully brought together and transcends clichés. Because of the fairytale atmosphere and the dark and mysterious images, Michelle displays her own conceptualized visual language in which there is a balance between text and image.”

World Press Photo | PhotoQ Bookshop picks of the month
A visualization of the secret stories of the Anansi in Suriname; an exploration of conflict and the River Magdalena in Colombia; a documentation of the impact of rapid-growth along the foot of the Great Wall of China; and a new take on the history of photography: discover the photo books selected this month by PhotoQ Bookshop’s manager Edie Peters.
Eddie Peters, PhotoQ Bookshop’s manager, says: “The book is actually a folder with fold-outs: beautiful photos of objects, plants, handshakes on the outside, and written stories on the inside. Great collaboration of photographer and designer Sybren Kuiper.”
