July 20, 2022

In this compilation, we wish to capture the delightful spirit of summer through the stunning images of the 2021 BIFA winners. The chosen images evoke feelings of enthusiasm and vibrancy, which is why they make us think of the summertime. Hopefully, they'll give you the same impression!

The Presence of An Absence

The Presence of An Absence - Francesco Pace-Rizzi

The ephemeral geometries of the shadows, sometimes complex, sometimes simple, have always had a very special allure and attraction; the protagonists of the scene are the shadows, able to liberate the imagination, creating surreal and impalpable images, made of "darkness" of absence with a suggestive effect of visual ambiguity: the subject is outside the frame but yet it is inside the scene!

Water Dance - Chin-Fa Tzeng

The dancers dove into the water while dancing elegantly while donning stunning dance attire. Through the unique cut-out glass windows on the pool wall, the photographer is able to capture the joy of the dance. Use AFC focus and high-speed continuous photography to catch the lovely figure and the lovely tale of the dance in the water at the meeting point of light and darkness in a moment.

Leg-Rowing Fisherman_Ii - Win Tun Naing

A freshwater lake called Inle Lake (Burmese) is located in Myanmar's Shan State's Nyaungshwe Township in Taunggyi District (Burma). The iconic image of Myanmar's Inle Lake is a leg-rowing fisherman. Leg-rowing is essentially an Intha traditional method of fishing. The leg-rowing technique is still used by traditional fishermen, who stand at the stern and grab the boat's hull with one foot while wrapping the other leg around an oar. The fisherman will use conical-shaped nets that they submerge in the lake to catch a limited number of carp.

Covid Summer - Mirko La Martina

The photographer intended for summer 2020 (in Sardinia) to be the first summer when Covid 19, the virus that has brought the world to its knees, had to be dealt with. Because there was a chance that the second wave may occur, it had to be the summer of caution and distance. Sadly, such was not the case. Despite the staggering number of fatalities and the graphic pictures broadcast on television, the initial caution was gradually replaced by a longing for freedom, which eventually led to complete disregard for the law. Today, the infection appears to be spreading.
