LORENZO POLI

The Seed of Life

Austerdalsbreen, Veitastrond, Norway

“Water is the most incredible element on Earth and has great versatility in transitioning between multiple states and forms. All living beings are made or depend on fresh water to thrive. Water is truly the Seed of Life. Glacial ice is the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth. What are the global consequences for the shrinkage of Glaciers?”

third Prize

FERNANDO MANSO

Intuición, frondosidad, niebla y luz

Bogotá, Colombia

“Empezó a quemarse una parte del bosque y tuve la suerte de poder sacar una imagen antes de que el fuego llegara. La tristeza era ver cómo se consumía zonas cercanas a donde yo estaba. El humo que originó ese fuego me hizo retratar y rescatar la vida dentro de desastre. Para crear conciencia de cómo se está destruyendo la Tierra.”
