From over 3000 entries submitted from countries in all the continents of the world, 123 prints were selected to become the RPS International Print Exhibition 155.
“The variety of the themes amongst the winning images is breathtaking; from the Goths lost in music at the gig, completely transfixed in their devotion to an unknown (by the viewer) band, to two girls on a beach watching a plane fly by. The power of these strikingly graphic black and white images drew me in and held my gaze and created wonder at the world in all its photographic details. While the subtle beauty of the colours and space in the ‘snorkeler’ keeps me finding more and more to look at and lose myself in. The winning image of the girl with the deer, takes me on many imaginary journeys through narratives from fairy tales to modern day stories of hope and despair.
It’s truly amazing, the power that photography has to capture, inform, transform and to create imagination and that’s exactly what this great exhibition of photographs does”. Tom Hunter HonFRPS, 2012 selector
