Egyptian Nights – White Desert, Egypt
Burak Esenbey/Milky Way photographer of the year
“This year, I went to Egypt for the first time. From Cairo, we drove about five hours west to our base camp, where we always started our explorations. The desert in Egypt is divided into the White and Black Desert. As its name suggests, the Black Desert consists of dark soil and large hills, while the White Desert is somewhat rugged but mostly consists of fine, light Saharan sand.

Project – Silver – Portrait of a Village
‘Documenting the Ukrainian village from which my family were taken by Nazis in 1942 – I’m the first of my family to ever go back. The village has witnessed great horrors: epidemics, famines, invasions and murders. The focus was my relief to find such a welcoming and colourful place. A wonderful Ukrainian community that didn’t echo my Black Sea German ancestor’s dark history. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has turned all that on its head. I’m deeply concerned about everyone involved in the project and fear history is repeating itself.’ Photograph: Catherine Losing/c/o AOP Continue reading »

The Fox’s Tale: Milan Radisics, Hungary (1st place, Wildlife & Nature)
Radisics says: ‘Over eight months, I spent almost every night sitting at the window of my cottage in the middle of the forest. The young vixen appears in the village after dusk, circles an hour and a half, and appears in a courtyard several times.

I set the lights in advance, like in a studio, and waited for the protagonist to walk into the scene’ Continue reading »

The Nawarddeken people of West Arnhem Land have been practising controlled cool burns for tens of thousands of years and see fire as a tool to manage their 1.39m-hectare homeland.
