Revisiting: The Foto8 Summer Show and Award 2009 – HOST Gallery

Foto8 and HOST Gallery recently announced the winner of the Best in Show at the Foto8 Summer Show 2009, and it’s an interesting choice.

“Mr Brohr in his room full of pictures”, by Torben Weiss, is an image which I found slightly disturbing. But it is complex and it is an image which has a lot to say and which raises a lot of questions.

As you may remember, visitors to the gallery were able to cast their vote and the winner of the 2009 Public Vote was awarded to Sofie Knijff for her image of “A boy from Hombori who wants to be a journalist. He didn’t have a jacket so he drew one on.”
