In The Gallery presents AWARD WINNERS, a show consisting of works by critically acclaimed artists, all of which have won various prestigious awards from around the globe. The show depicts a broad glimpse into what the medium of fine art photography can be, and how it can emerge from many different backgrounds and approaches to picture making.
In AWARD WINNERS you will be able to see fine art photography by artists with backgrounds as diverse as in cinematography, photojournalism, advertising and architecture.
What they all have in common is the ability to create poetic and atmospheric imagery, which leaves no doubt about how art can transcend.
Artists in the Show:
JACOB GILS (b. 1963) lives and works in Copenhagen. He has exhibited in solo and group shows across the globe and his works are represented in the Danish Royal Collection, Nanjing Art Museum, China and at Maersk in Denmark as well as in private collections all over Europe, and in USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Australia.

CARSTEN INGEMANN (b.1952) His works unfold in the space between a distinctly Nordic landscape tradition and a psychological space less easily defined. To his fine art practice, Carsten Ingemann brings a certain sensibility towards his subject matter, honed during his more than three decade long career as a renowned photographer, documenting political events, conflicts and war zones from around the world.

Laust Jensen Award
LEA JESSEN (b.1978) lives and works in Copenhagen. She was educated at the School of Photography in 2004, and has worked with the photographic medium since 1997.

With their focus on clean lines and abstract colour planes, these anonymous architectural fragments take on a minimalist aesthetic, making them reminiscent of the concrete art of the 1940s and 50s.

ANDREW MOORE (1957) is a New York based fine art photographer and filmmaker, whose colourful photographs depict famous urban places, landscapes and architectural structures, largely devoid of people.
