2nd Place: Solar Graphic by Andrius Repšys
In 2021, Lithuania once again experienced a winter of heavy snowfalls - a result of the climate crisis and global warming. Depicted in these photographs are sustainable energy sources such as dams, wind turbines and solar batteries - the very things we need in order to slow down the occurrences of climate disasters. Two of the three main elements of Solar Graphics seasonality and sustainable energy organically and purposefully complement each other. Winter's monochromatic palette helps reveal the graphic elements found in the white snow. As the land is disrupted by dark lines new images appear, a mouth full of dazzling white teeth or a robot with a surprised look on its face. The high vantage point reduces the landscape to abstraction allowing the viewer to find new meanings and interpretations in the photograph.
