Happiness On The Move 2015: the winner

The Korean photographer Daesung Lee wins the fourth edition of the International award Happiness On The Move with Futuristic Archaeology.
The jury of the Happiness On The Move award 2015, composed by some of the world’s top photo editors, has selected Daesung Lee’s work amongst 1600 others submitted from every corner of the world. «Daesung Lee, with an aesthetics that mixes documentary photography and mise en scene – as motivated by the jury – offers us a very original and effective representation of reality, and in a poetic way it puts us in front of the issue of environmental protection. A very strong concept that mixes a vision of the past with a forecast of the future, is the strength of this work. Daesung deals with the issue of uncertainty experienced by the nomadic people in Mongolia, through images in which formal beauty attracts so much impeding an immediate reading of the context: the observer, at a first glance, isn’t able to understand the symbols that he is observing. Yet it’s powerful and fascinating».
The award winning project is dedicated to the desertification process in Mongolia and will be produced and exhibited during the 2016 edition of Cortona On The Move. Deasung Lee will be awarded in Cortona by Giovanni Busi, the president of the Consortium Vino Chianti on Saturday July 18th 2015 at Palazzo Casali in Cortona (h. 11 pm).
The International Award Happiness On The Move 2015 is organized by the festival Cortona On The Move together with the Consortium Vino Chianti like last year.
