Ladies and Gentlemen: The Winners of the PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOLARSHIPS at the IED MADRID

We are pleased to announce the following SCHOLARSHIPS from the IED MADRID’s Photography department!

European Master in Fine Art Photography

The first scholarship goes to Nafis Ahmed Gazi from Dhaka (Bangladesh). Nafis was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and the portfolio he presented for the contest shows the old part of this city, its many social, political, and environmental challenges. His work documents the constant changes and feels very immediate and close to the people. In his hands, photography is a powerful, dangerous and still highly aesthetic vision of the world that surrounds us. Nafis graduated from Bangladesh International Tutorial High School in 2003 and continued his education at the London Guildhall University in Art & Design. He received a B.A. with Honors in 2008 from Pathshala, the South Asian Media Academy, with his final semester conducted abroad at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. He is a member of VII Photo Mentor Program, under the tutoring of John Stanmeyer.

The second scholarship goes to Klaus Lundi, a young image maker originally from Colombia who is now resident in Hamburg (Germany). Klaus has been published in Kaltblut Magazine and others, and is developing an experimental and quite personal work, which oscillates between portraits, lifestyle and travel photography.

The other selected finalists were:

Pezhman Zahed Banisi (UK)
Inge Trienekens (Netherlands)
Mireia Ferron Esquena (Spain)
Eoin Moylan (Ireland)

Laura’s work is politically and socially engaged and she will take full advantage of the possibility to bring her work in a publishable form during her stay in Madrid.

Bangladesh. His work has been exhibited at the Fotographia Festival in Rome, and he was the finalist of Fabrica Scholarship and Ian Parry scholarship recently. His experience in the documentary field and his interest in for authorial photography make him the ideal candidate for this course, which aims to work with a new breed of photographers who work successfully both in the commercial and the artistic field.

The second scholarship goes to Alesia Belaya, from Minsk (Belarus). She has worked as an observer for the first Belarusian interior design magazine “Majordomo” and newspapers such as “Narodnaja Volja”, and the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.
