Moscow International Foto Awards 2021

Silver Winner at MIFA 2021 Photo Awards for my series “Forgotten Horses” and Bronze Winner for “Poésie”

Silver and Bronze Winner in category Nature

I am pleased to announce that my work is being exhibited at the Moscows International Foto Awards 2021. I have submitted the artwork “Poésie” and the series “Forgotten Horses” in the Nature category, in which they stand in between so many great photos from all around the world.

Forgotten Horses

More than 60% of our equine breeds are endangered or have a vulnerable status with such small populations, that their destiny often depends on the selfless commitment of individual persons. The project “Forgotten Horses” portrays rare and endangered horse breeds, with the goal to raise awareness to disappearing horse breeds and preserve equine diversity.

 

The horses shown are Schwarzwälder Kaltblut in Germany, Cheval de Vercors de Barraquand in France, Noriker in Czech Republic, Kladruber in Czech Republic, Rottaler in Germany, Pottok in France, Suffolk Punch in Great Britain and Poitevin de Mulassier in France.

Poésie

My second entry is this image titled “Poésie” which also made it to the jury’s shortlist, which I am very happy about. It is one of my personal favourites of the Haflinger mare Indyana, which I photographed in the Netherlands in 2018.
Horse pictures don’t have it particularly easy at photo awards, but when they do, fiery baroque horses, elegant sport horses or wild mustangs usually make it into the galleries. I am all the more pleased to be able to score points with a “fat Haflinger” of all things 😝 

 

Unconventional and not perfect, this portrait is radiating calmness and a certain poetry. The model is Haflinger mare Indyana with her infinitely long blond mane in the wind.

Preserve equine diversity

Forgotten Horses

Almost 60% of our equine breeds are endangered or have a vulnerable status with such small populations, that their destiny often depends on the selfless commitment of individual persons. It is my mission now to explore rare and endangered horse breeds and to raise awareness by giving them a new platform and to preserve equine diversity.
