The Hasselblad Masters 2018 Jury

Made up of past Masters winners, experienced photographers and members of the photographic press, the Hasselblad Masters Awards 2018 jury members were:

Masters Jury member and professional photographer Tom Oldham said,

“It really struck me how progressive many of the entries were this year and how far the entrants were willing to push the brief. These were the photographers who caught my eye - the ballsy, out-there risk-takers who make compelling pictures that refuse to be ignored. I’m proud to have helped to get this great kit into their hands – their images deserve it.”
