The Warsaw-based documentary photographer Jan Brykczynski has been announced as the winner of the Syngenta Photography Award Professional Commission at a ceremony at Somerset House, London.

Jan Brykczynski (Poland) was selected by an international jury, chaired by the author and curator William A. Ewing, for his series “Árnes”, which documents an isolated region in the Icelandic Western Fjords and responding to this year’s Rural-Urban theme. Here he spent several months studying the relationship between the natural surroundings and the village’s small community.

In addition to the US$ 15,000 prize money, Brykczynski will receive a grant of up to US$ 25,000 to complete a commission, a central part of the professional competition. “Farming Tribes” will explore the relationship between human beings and nature in four of the world’s major urban spaces – New York, Yerevan, Warsaw and Nairobi.

Mimi Mollica (Italy), announced as the second place winner for the Professional Commission, was awarded US$ 10,000, and Pablo Lopez Luz (Mexico) received US$ 5,000 in third place.

Holly Lynton (USA) was announced as winner of the Open Competition for “Sienna, Turkey Madonna”, in which a farm worker embraces four turkeys that are to be slaughtered for Thanksgiving on an independent farm in the small town of Shutesbury, Massachusetts. The image is part of the series, “Bare Handed”, in which Lynton explores communities struggling to maintain agrarian traditions despite the challenges of globalization.

Talk about send out the wrong signals about photography.
What makes this the winning Image may I ask, there has to be an explanation as to why this wins surely?
