Honorable Mention

"Beauty In Hell: The Street Children"
These children are part of the so called "Street Children", some of the most dangerous gangs in Nairobi, Kenya. The "children" in this photo are 14 and 17 years old. Mathare Slums, Nairobi.

Biography: Freelance documentary & fine art photographer based in Italy. In the last 3 years my work received several awards including: PX3, IPA, Allard Prize, Lens Culture Portrait Award, HIPA and others. I am particularly interested in the development of personal projects that give a real, current and, I hope, true vision of what is happening around the world. My long-term project �Beauty In Hell�, on which I�ve been working for 3 years, focuses on Beauty over Drama by finding and documenting the beauty (and not the drama) present in some of the most difficult realities around the world.
