SALON/13 Launch Party & Hotshoe Photofusion Award Announcement

Photofusion’s Private view was busy, tasty and a lively atmosphere. It was great to see the members all together discussing each others work, whilst enjoying the food and drinks from our generous sponsors Sipsmith spirits and Franco Manca’s pizzas. We’d like to thank everyone who came for making it such a fantastic evening!

This year we continued collaboration with Hotshoe magazine for the Hotshoe Photofusion Award 2013. Miranda Gavin, Editor-at-Large, was the judge for this award and began the announcement by talking us through the images that stuck in her mind as she was looking through the 90 artist’s work in the show.

– CJ Everard

– Davy Jones

Then having handed out party-poppers to the crowd, Miranda announced the overall winner of the Hotshoe Photofusion Award: Katarina Mudronova, with her images from the series ‘Strategic Cooking’.

The project shows simple domestic objects taking on new and unexpected meanings, and is Katarina’s reflection on the impact of globalization and how humanity is dealing with this phenomenon. Katarina Mudronova is a London based photographic artist, originally from Slovakia. Katarina gained her MA in Photographic Studies at the University of Westminster.
