EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHY CONTENDER: LEON FOGGITt

Leon Foggitt is an editorial and commercial photographer living in London. Pond Life is a series of portraits featuring the clientele of the men’s outdoor swimming pool in Hampstead Heath, North-West London, which has remained relatively unchanged since the 30s’. The portraits were taken straight after each swimmer got out of the water from their morning swim. In the winter months “there is a sense of camaraderie, which increases as the water gets colder”, says the artist. 

Prizes for the 3rd Annual Emerging Photography Awards include gallery exhibitions at United Photo Industries (Brooklyn), ArtBridge (NYC) and HeadOn Festival (Sydney), $$$$, representation opportunities with Susan Spiritus Gallery (LA) andnineteensixtyeight (London), exposure, camera bags and more!  Deadline is February 16, 2017.
