2017 Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year

Amateur and enthusiast photographers from all around the country have gathered their best images and submitted them to the expert judgement of our panel of industry leaders — Brett Stanley, Charles Howells, Katherine Williams, Kaye Davis, Mark Gee, Michael Miller, Richard Wood, Peter Robertson, and Simon Devitt.

For several years, the Sigma Amateur Photographer of the Year has been the country’s largest amateur photography contest and certainly the most popular online gallery of its kind. Each year, the quantity of entries increases, and so, too, the calibre of images improves. 2017’s contest received a record 9337 submissions across the 11 categories, many of which prove that advanced photographic technologies and techniques, such as focus stacking, aerial imaging, and timelapse, are no longer reserved for the pros.

Josef Hoflehner

Josef Hoflehner (1955) lives in Austria but works everywhere: he has long held a fascination with secluded places and empty spaces and since the early 1990’s, he has worked in some of the most remote and forbidding areas of the world; including Antarctica, Vietnam, China, Japan, the Yemen, Iceland, and most recently, the Deep South of the United States.

Quelques mots de Francis Hodgson sur la photographie de Josef Hoflehner:
Un certain type de photographie restitue au paysage ces qualités qui, au XIIIème Siècle, suscitaient un sentiment quasi d’horreur en confrontant la taille infime de l’être humain à la nature et ses terribles pouvoirs. Certes, la photographie est toujours plus ou moins littérale mais ce genre de paysage ne cache pas ses intentions d’être traité comme une métaphore. Josef Hoflehner est en passe de devenir un des plus éminents représentants de ce type.
