There are no nets here. to cast nor trawlers to drag, the man-made dam created by various sticks strategically stuck on the water creates a nursery and a cage on the large body of water, just like the ancient surfers who founded the ancient floating city of Epe did this about 300 years ago. “
An entry in the portrait category for the 2022 awards features two people who are passionate about cars. The photographer and the main man himself.

I was blown away by the variety and history of American muscle cars in the workshop and his ability to find rare cars all over the UK and US, I knew I had to photograph him. “

Let me see the world
Portrait with emotion. That’s what we’re getting with the latest from the Sony World Photography Awards.
