Award : Picture of Year, category Natural History , Rafal MIlach

I am happy to hear that Rafal Milach , a young talented Polish photographer also represented by Anzenberger Agency has won the second price of the POY (picture of the year) in the category Natural History. I will write more about Rafal in the next future but I like to post this note as I do like the essay on Ukraine by the Black Sea .
More from Rafal Milach in his web site
here a note from the essay :
The Black Sea coast has been constantly transformed. Omnipresent concrete, industrial zones or the iron waste by the sea don’t remind harmonic idyll between nature and man. People often change the landscape in a very brutal way and the sea fights back for its natural shape and territory. I went to the Ukrainian Black Sea coast to explore this mutual influence and relation between the man and sea. Ukraine is the country in transition and for the last few years looks for its new identity. So does the Black Sea coast.
