The Fascinating Winning Images of AAP Magazine 26 Shapes

We’re delighted to reveal the names of the 24 talented photographers who won ”AAP Magazine #26: Shapes”. Thank you to my dear friend Ann Jastrab, the Executive Director of the Center for Photographic Art for being a juror for this competition.

For this 26th edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for submissions of works of art that explore composition and form as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic, be it pure visual formalism or in support of a thematic objective. Understanding shape and form is one of the pillars of photography composition, and it can make even the most common object become a work of art. Geometric, organic, positive or negative, shapes contribute to a photograph’s overall esthetics and vibes.

We chose twenty-four photographers for their different approach to the idea of Shapes. Their work is diverse: architecture, mixed- media, still life, abstractions… and use different techniques & perspectives but each one showcases a unique point of view.
