The finalists for the Leica Oscar Barnack Award 2019 have been announced!

2,300 entries from 99 countries: as always, this year’s LOBA jury – headed by Karin Rehn-Kaufmann – must have been faced with some difficult decisions. Now, however, the finalists for the Leica Oscar Barnack Award have been announced. We present a brief overview of the selected series:  

Mustafah Abdulaziz: Water
The American photographer explores the role of water for humanity, and our relationship with this vital natural resource

Rafael Heygster: I Died 22 Times
What constitutes the start of a war? Heygster searches for answers on the ‘playing fields’ that turn warfare into a leisure activity

Tomas van Houtryve: Lines and Lineage

Tadas Kazakevicius: Soon to Be Gone
The photographer, who was born in Vilnius, casts a nostalgic eye over his home country of Lithuania

Michal Solarski: Rest Behind the Curtain
Dilapidated sanatoriums and holiday resorts from the Soviet era serve as the backdrops for Solarski’s offbeat scenes

Wells visited 24 refugee camps to explore both their symbolic meaning, and the reality of their inhabitant’s lives

Johan Willner & Peo Olsson: Heap
A long-term project dedicated to landscapes and their ever-changing forms, both overt and obscure
