EXCERPT: CREATE BOOM
How beautiful is this photograph by Paola Ismene from Mexico City? It has just been named the winner of the #SelfExpression competition, run by the Saatchi Gallery in association with Huawei.
The photographer won the competition, which was part of the From Selfie to Self-Expression exhibition, with her entry Daydream in Blue, and will be awarded a solo show at London's prestigious Saatchi Gallery.
Ismene's image was selected from over 9,000 entries by artists.
Of the win, Paola said:
"I am truly grateful for being selected…because it’s a great platform to expose the work of emerging photographers. Mobile photography has allowed me to capture countless images in my everyday life. So I find it fortunate to participate in competitions like this where the use of new technologies in the artistic field are recognised."
