Wendi Schneider Awarded by The Independent Photographer

Posted on Jul 20, 2021

The Independent Photographer recently awarded gallery artist Wendi Schneider third prize for Color Photography. The award was juried by Brandei Estes, the Head of Photographs at Sotheby’s London.

The Independent Photographer Editors said the following regarding Wendi Schneider:

“Wendi Schneider’s captivating image is an exquisite coalescence of form, light, and color. Captured close up, the flamingo’s contorted, textural shape reveals a sculptural quality and recalls the works of master portrayers of the organic form such as Ruth Bernhard and Edward Weston, whilst the innovative marriage of digital and physical techniques, serves to augment the beauty of the striking coral shades and creates a subtle ethereality that evokes the ‘Autochrome’ color photographs of the early 20th century.”
