A Big Fat Sky by Max Miechowski

Honourable Mention – Personal

Max Miechowski’s A Big Fat Sky is a body of work that explores the landscapes and communities along the east coast of Britain. Through contrasting images of beach scenes, resort details and delicate portraits, the work documents the subtle complexities of life at the country’s edge. “Having grown up close to the Lincolnshire coastline, and spending many holidays in Norfolk and Yorkshire as a child, this part of the country has been the source of much wonder and fascination for me throughout my life,” says Miechowski.

“In recent years I have begun to recognise the complexity and contrasts within both the landscape and the economy here, and set out to create a body of work that demonstrates this visually, through a poetic narrative of portraiture and landscape photographs.”
