Award Name:06 Feature Photography Award
Award Recipient:Q. Sakamaki
Award Recipient Affiliation:Redux Pictures/Time
Q. Sakamaki’s lyrical and poetic imagery from Xinjiang, China was a fresh vision of a region of the world often spoken about but seldom seen. By using black and white photography and through his inherent creative approach, Sakamaki transports the viewer to the heart of age-old tensions between Han Chinese and the Uighur population of Western China. His images are timeless but immediate.
