Wait, What? The Spectacular Winning Images of the Potato Photographer of the Year 2021!
Overall winner – Fish & Chips by William Ropp, a surreal amalgamation of fish and vegetable
Created to celebrate the trusty spud, and to raise funds to help people in food poverty via The Trussell Trust, the Potato Photographer of the Year has announced this year’s winning entries.
“There’s something extremely wonderful and weird about this work. The amalgamation of vegetables and animals creates a strange portrait of the everyday food we consume. The fact that the image was taken on a polaroid camera with just a flashlight is of great credit to the photographer’s skill.” Amy D’Agorne.
