The Gadget Scientist is a comprehensive handbook that covers key points that will be useful for the user picking up a digital camera for the first time right through to the enthusiast who wants to learn to make the most of their camera’s features.
Ed was judged to have the best body of work by a four-strong judging panel: Diane Smyth, deputy editor of the BJP; Louise Clements, senior curator, co-founder and director of the Format Photography Festival; Mike Seaborne, senior curator of photographs at the Museum of London; and Sophie Howarth, co-author of ‘Street Photography Now’, published by Thames & Hudson.
Ed remarks: “This image is part of a large project I have been working on for some years about city life, and the place of people – particularly the workers – within it. I am very interested in combining high contrast, deep shadows and geometric patterns in the street scene with ambiguous human figures to produce images that hopefully resonate in a slightly different way from the street photographs people may have become familiar with in the past.”
