Salon/16 | Public’s Choice Award
Many thanks to everyone that submitted work to Salon/16, it was an extremely strong year and we’re looking forward to what 2017’s show will bring.
Whilst the show is running we invite the general public to vote for their favourite image and with a gallery full of 103 separate photographs, it’s not an easy task.
This year we had a tie vote with two very different photographs and very different projects winning the Public’s Choice Award.
Firstly, congratulations to Angelika Berndt. Her image Urban Farming which was taken in China is the first winner of the award.
Urban Farming is part on an ongoing project where Angelika observes parts of China which are experiencing huge economical and cultural reform.
“The project China Today is my attempt to explore and understand the Chinese dream of power and expansion. What does it mean for a country with a long-standing cultural tradition like China to re-invent itself as a powerful, expanding player in the world economy?”

The second winner of the Public’s Choice Award is Emma Marshall with her image Fenton and Charlotte 11:30pm Greenford.
Emma submitted a group of photographs taken as part of the Central 24/7 project with the collective LDNtwentyfour7.
“Riding the new London night tube service, I made portraits of its users using a twin lens medium format film camera. This couple were on their way to a warehouse rave.”
