The winners of the 5th Gomma Photography Grant 2018
The First Prize Winner is the 25 years old female photographer Tabitha Barnard, from New Hampshire, USA. The beauty of her work is in her subtlety. Her images do not scream nor shout but they are equally filled with emotions and meanings. A very personal take about transitioning into womanhood with references to her 'staunchly' Christian household, witchcraft, rituals and escaping into the nature.

The Second Prize goes once more to Vladimir Vasilev for his new series: Nocte Intempesta, while the Third Prize goes to female Portuguese photographer Fatima Abreu Ferreira for her grainy black and white work titled 'How to disappear completely' - a very personal story about her childhood hometown, where she used the camera as a tool " to proof that I existed."

Winner of the 2018 Gomma Grant:
Tabitha Barnard with Cult of Womanhood.
