The Stunning Winning Images of AAP Magazine 13 Shapes

We’re delighted to reveal the names of the 25 talented photographers who won AAP Magazine #13: Shapes

For this 13th edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for submissions of works of art that explore composition and form as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic, be it pure visual formalism or in support of a thematic objective.

We chose twenty-five photographers (from 11 different countries) for their different approach to the idea of Shapes. Their work is diverse: documentary, architecture, nudes, still life, abstractions… and use different techniques & perspectives but each one showcases a unique point of view.

Selecting the winners was certainly not an easy task, but in the end we hope you will all enjoy this collection of photographs.
