Events • NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC presents 100 Days in Tibet – the promise photographed by York Hovest for the Dalai Lama as an illustrated book and live reportage across Germany

07.10.2015 • You should always be careful when making promises. This is how fashion photographer York Hovest from Munich felt, who accompanied the Dalai Lama for three days in 2011. York Hovest promised the Dalai Lama he would do him a favor: He would travel to Tibet, the home of the Dalai Lama, and capture the sorrow but also the beauty of the country and the Tibetan people. The promise took Hovest on a wonderful adventure. A photo expedition, the results of which are now available in the form of an illustrated book from NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC as well as fine art prints.

York Hovest traveled to Tibet twice and visited forbidden terrain, forgotten places, portrayed people fighting against Chinese suppression and personally reached his physical and psychological limits in the heights of the Himalayas. The photographer was underway for 100 days, covered 5400 kilometers, and brought home 9000 photos and twelve hours of video footage. One of a kind shots of the northern flank of Mount Everest, photographs of the ancient Buddhist culture, and touching snapshots. An extraordinary NATIONAL...

30.09.2015 • In the GoSeeAWARDS special discipline SCREENINGS for the most creative and inspiring online portfolio, the 2015 Gold winner was photography newcomer Maarten Schröder.

Without having studied photography, Maarten Schröder (1987, The Netherlands) has become established in little over a year as a notable photographer. There has been a lot of positive feedback from the people who have come in contact with his work; even the well-known Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf has expressed his support.

In his work, Maarten searches for the ultimate form of simplicity, but at the same time manages to capture reality in an estranging way. He has collaborated with many Dutch modeling agencies, as well as some in Milan, who helped him develop his portfolio, which contains so many interesting faces.

For an exhibition in Amsterdam, a select group of artists were chosen to display some of their creations - and three of Maarten's photographs were selected to debut as the first photographic work shown. /maartenschroder

Merits for Daniel de Koekkoek, Lise Anne Marsal and Neil Bedford - the winners in the category REPORTAGE

30.09.2015 • Whispers in East Berlin - There were always ghosts in the house. Breathing, moving, slowly. Changing the shadows. Whispers of movement of articles of clothing. They were memories. Not actual spirits. They were things that happened in the house in the past, and they stayed. They didn't leave. And they were thick. They were not loud. They were the things we did not talk about. The house was built by my maternal grandparents in 1939, right before my mother was born. In Eastern Berlin. Four generations have been in this house. And even though furniture comes and goes, my great grandmother always sits in the front dining room. Quietly, alone, she is solemn and shut down... you can.

My grandmother is laying on the sofa in the living room. Napping, she has been addicted to sleeping pills since the end of WW2. My mother is little and cold in the small bedroom upstairs. Her room is dark, she is trembling, and she is alone. Both of my grandfathers are in the room that I sleep in when I visit. My step-grandfather is occupied with fixing the poorly made East German made vacuum cleaner,...

30.09.2015 • As if STEPHANIE PISTEL knew well before this year's GoSeeAWARDS15 that she would take home Gold in the category SKIN / BEAUTY; the title of her winning work is 'Aureum', the Latin name for the precious metal. She exclaims: "Many thanks for the award! I am very happy about it!" The motifs were created in New York and reflect both the blinding power of pure gold as well as its negative side: the golden cage. The spread titled 'Persuasion' was photographed by Stephanie in Amsterdam, and the motifs are themed upon the shy and almost transparent. She was supported in the project by illustrator Naja Conrad-Hansen.

30.09.2015 • The creative duo Rocket & Wink convinced the 2015 GoSeeAWARDS jury in the category Illustration with their works from their own magazine Whatever, issue 8 - Infinity.
