Chelsea International Photography Competition

The Chelsea International Photography Competition exhibition features the diverse works of 28 professional and amateur photographers. The works on view were selected by a distinguished panel of jurors and convey the astonishing breadth and global nature of the photographic medium. Through expressive portraits, still lifes, and conceptual works, the exhibition conveys a unique perspective on the tradition of photography and how the medium conveys ideas, creates fictions, or captures attitudes.

Korean photographer and photojournalist HaleLee Seoyeon masterfully captures the paradox of compassionate isolation in urban spaces.

Frosty

“There is a great mix of whimsy, drama and simplicity to this photograph that really makes it stand out. There is enough backlighting to illuminate the icicles yet not so much to draw your attention away from the 50’s pop idol for whom the street is named. It’s also obvious that the photographer was out in the thick of this ice storm to capture this shot. Kudos to you.”

1st Place
“Frosty Night in Ottawa”
Shot by Vlastimil Pojman with an OM-D E-M1 Mark II, M.Zuiko ED 14-150mm F4.0-5.6 II.
