Portrait of a Cotton Candy Seller Wins Food Photographer of the Year
The winners of the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2023 have been announced with a striking portrait of a cotton candy seller taking home over $6,000.
The Candy Man by John Enoch taken in Mumbai, India beat off the competition to be crowned the overall winner.
“I’m ecstatic to receive this award, it’s a real honor to get this recognition in such a prestigious competition laden with wonderful imagery,” says Enoch.
“The winning image was part of a personal project — a huge amount of time and thought went into capturing it so it’s great to be recognized by such an esteemed panel of judges.
“Ever since I first saw the candy floss sellers I was drawn to the shapes, colors, and juxtaposition of the candy and the urban environment.”
The judging panel received thousands of entries submitted from 65 countries and the winners will be exhibited at The Royal Photographic Society in Bristol, U.K. It will run from Saturday, May 20 to Sunday, June 11.
