"I choose to nominate Kathy Anne Lim because I find her documentary work refreshing and very appealing. In her pictures she comes across as genuinely curious and I like the twist of humor in her work."

I met Valentina Sinis online during the Hamburg Portfolio Review and was impressed by her journalistic drive and strong aesthetics.
