Among the big discoveries at the GoSeeAWARDS was certainly photographer Hana Knížová. The Czech native studied photography at the London College of Communication. The adversities and hopes of youth, interpersonal relations, intimacy, family bonds... these are the topics she masterfully captures in her sensitive photos. And the quality of her work did not go unnoticed: She has won, for instance, the John Kobal New Work Award in 2013 of the National Portrait Gallery in London as well as Photographer of the Year at Czech Grand Design in 2019.
Hana Knížová on the works submitted by her to the GoSeeAWARDS : “The submitted images are a brief cut through my work, and they come from various projects. Some are individual portraits, and some are part of larger series. I have worked with people from quite opposite backgrounds – from very privileged to socially deprived, and both were an incredible experience. The use of strong colors and repetitiveness plays a major role in my aesthetics.”

Beauty photographer Camilla Camaglia submitted photos from his book entitled “Art Beyond Beauty” to the GoSee Awards, which were created in cooperation with make-up artist Einat Dan and sponsored by Kryolan. “The book is all about creative beauty looks and so are all the photos in it.” Camilla Camaglia continues : “I was born in 1984 in Italy, raised in different countries and now live and work as freelance photographer between Rome and Berlin. I graduated in 2007 in Photography and Visual Communication at the IED in Rome.”
With this book, Einat Dan and Camilla Camaglia took the challenge to create something visually different, outside of normal beauty stereotypes. Something beyond beauty.
KRYOLAN : “Einat and Camilla have been producing creative imagery together for over seven years. Both have the passion to create beauty images with individual flair while showing another side of beauty. The purpose of this book is to inspire people to think outside of the box. They hope to encourage younger generations of make-up artists and people passionate about expression to push boundaries.
Einat is well known for her unique style in beauty, fashion and avant-garde make-up. Her talent combines perfectly with the photographic vision and technical knowledge of Camilla. Together, they form a creative powerhouse that has produced a unique body of work. This shared experience gave them the confidence to throw themselves into the ambitious goal of creating a complete new body of work for this book over just five months.
Einat likes to show that you can reinvent yourself through make-up, and both artists believe in sharing their artistic knowledge while striving to push their own creative limits with each challenge. There is no limit to creativity. When exploring the infinite ideas of creative make-up and making visions come to life, there is no room for hesitation.”

Photographer Philipp Mueller, born in Switzerland, captured the attention of the jury with his spread about the flea market in St. Ouen. “I’ve lived in Paris for 20 years, and I like to think that I know my home away from home. But still, it holds so many surprises even after such a long time. When I was called to photograph portraits for a project at the flea market in St. Ouen, on the city limits of Paris, I was immediately on board. There is one little corner of the flea market which successfully fends off the attacks of our modern day and age. This world is in danger, because the town is attractive for the upcoming Olympics.
The investors are already at the doorstep – just like the Romans once at the gates of the little Gaulish village with the ever so popular hero with the mustache. Which is why it was so important for me to capture this special place for eternity. First and foremost, to capture the people who have grown together with the flea market in their habitat.” We have the photos for you on GoSee.
About – The Saint Ouen Flea Market, officially created in 1885, is the largest antiques market in the world! The Flea Market – also referred to as the “Puces” – is a real institution and since 2001, has been recognized as a “Zone for the Protection of Architectural, Urban, and Landscape Heritage (ZPPAUP)” thanks to its unusual ambiance and atmosphere. It is considered the largest antiques market and second-hand shop in the world. The market covers seven hectares and hosts 14 markets: Antica, Biron, Cambo, Dauphine, Django Reinhardt, Jules Vallès, le Passage, Malassis, Malik, l’Entrepôt, Paul Bert Serpette, des Rues, L’Usine & Lécuyer and Vernaison. This tourist landmark, located north of Paris above of the 18th arrondissement, is held on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. You will discover Paris in an original way and will be surprised as you walk around the “Puces”. It’s a true treasure trove for vintage item aficionados and antiques amateurs… GoSee : marcheauxpuces-saintouen.com and find all shortlisted artists in the PORTRAIT category here : goseeawards.com/shortlist_portrait & gosee.de/philippmueller
