Judges

Shortlisted

There is a saying that “a photographer doesn’t take the photo but it is given by the sitter”, this is true in each of Maria Sturm’s frames which are juxtaposed between moments and the trust that she has built with those that she has captured. In essence, her project You Don’t Look Native To Me offers us a glimpse into a long-term project that portrays a community at the crossroads of the past and the future.
