Winners of the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards

Submerged field. Everyday aims towards a collective goal. The Colombian national team is immersed in white, grey, and black, fighting together for the ultimate position. With accredited prestige, an invitation was sent to participate in the European Junior Championship, as a guest team. Ana Maria and her team are constantly fighting, pushing their lungs to the limit and transforming their everyday lack of resources to an idea of opportunity. The volume of water suggests a calm while the surface gives constant chaos. It is in this scenario that the South American team is named youth world champion winners in Norway. #

Mother and child. Year 2016 represented a major change in my life, my wife got pregnant and our child was born. This particular photo represents my wife Alessandra as a new mother, we were doing a boudoir style photoshoot in our house in Sardinia, (she always supported me and encouraged me with my hobby as a photographer) when Santiago, my son, got hungry. I just got her a regular chair so she can feed him, and I realized that I couldn’t let this moment to get away unnoticed and decided to shoot this delicate ode to intimacy, bonding and maternal love. # © Oscar Carvajal Barrionuevo, Costa Rica, 2nd Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
