We interview 2015 Sony World Photography Awards shortlisted photographer, Julie van der Vaart.
"Pictures tell stories, and photography is the language I find most expressive. There is something more nuanced about a picture than a sentence; it leaves more room for a viewer to wonder."
"I like being able to look at the photographs and understand what they are telling me without having to read the text description about them. I want the photographs to speak for themselves."
We interview 15 year old Beatriz Mota da Rocha, winner of the Youth Culture category at the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.
We choose the last of our entries of the week, before the Open competition of the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards close on January 5.
