Mexico migrants star in award-winning portraits – BBC News – Latest News Today
A series of self-portraits of migrants in Mexico as they wait to cross the border into the United States has claimed the winning award in the 2022 Sony World Photography Awards’ professional category.
Adam Ferguson was named as photographer of the year in the category for his work, Migrates, a series of black and white portraits made in collaboration with the subjects.
Ferguson set up the equipment and scene, and then allowed the individuals to choose the moment to capture their own image.
“By giving his subjects the shutter release, Adam hands a certain power to the sitter to make that decision on how to be perceived,” said Mike Trow, chairman of the professional competition.
