International Photography Awards Announces Winners of the 2017 Competition!

LOS ANGELES, CA, October 04, 2017 – This year, the International Photography Awards received 14,267 submissions from over 165 countries, and is pleased to declare that Gabriele Golissa was awarded: 3rd place in the Book (Self-published) – Monograph category for the winning entry “Skies/Himmel”.

About the Winner:
Gabriele Golissa is a fine art photographer with a passion for skies. Originally born in Germany, she has since relocated to Montana, a state whose nickname is “Big Sky Country”. Photographing from both ground and air, Golissa insists on depicting the sky as she sees it, experimenting with aperture and shutter speed as well as image composition. She often places her prints beneath thick acrylic glass, adding depth and brilliancy to the image, bringing the sky back to life. She also prints on aluminum and canvas, surfaces that allow her to play, respectively, with color and softness. Golissa has just published “Skies/Himmel”, a fully bilingual art book (English/German) taking the reader on an inspiring and informative journey through her skies.
