Daniel Gentelev’s photo taken in Berlin is titled ‘Little Girl on a Fake Beach’ and is shortlisted in the Street Photography category
Israeli photographer Daniel Gentelev is one of 13 entrants shortlisted for an Open Photography Award in the Street Photography category of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards.
His picture, “Little Girl on a Fake Beach,” was taken in Berlin.
“I stumble by this image completely accidentally. I saw the girl with the broom while watching her movements to clean the beach. It was a moment when you realize that you are yourself a manifestation of a great divine life within you. Yourself as a vehicle of consciousness and life so that it becomes transparent to something that is beyond speech, beyond words, to what we call transcendence,” he wrote.
Gentelev graduated from the photography department of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem in 2011. In his third year he took part in Bezalel’s exchange program for merit students at the VSUP-Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague. His works have been published in several art magazines and group exhibitions in Europe.
The World Photography Organization announced that 326,997 entries were submitted across the four competitions of the 2019 Sony Awards, the highest-ever number to date. Category winners will be announced March 26, and the $5,000 Open Photographer of the Year prize winner revealed on April 17.
“As one of the world’s largest and most prestigious global photography competitions, the Awards annually celebrate and promote the best contemporary photography from the past year across a wide variety of photographic genres,” said the organization in its announcement of the shortlist.
This year’s Open and Youth competition judging was chaired by Rebecca McClelland, Photography Director & Head of Art Production for Saatchi Saatchi & Prodigious (UK). All shortlisted and winning images will be exhibited from April 18 until May 6, 2019 at Somerset House, London.
