Hasselblad X You has showcased the incredible talents among X System creatives over the past three months with a curated collection of 12 weekly winners chosen. The selected photographers encompass multiple countries across the globe with their own shooting styles, colour palettes, and stories behind who they are, what the X System does for them, and how they captured their stunning imagery. Each weekly winner won an XCD lens in addition to accessories from competition partners Peak Design and PolarPro. Selected by an internal Hasselblad jury in addition to the competition’s inspirational spotlight photographers, the final grand prize winner chosen among the 12 weekly winners is Chicago-based photographer Clarissa Bonet.
“For me, this image stands out because of the mixture of subjects and genre – fashion vs street – all while maintaining a clear focus on the model. So much to take in and yet there is still a strong focus when viewing this image. Very nicely done,” says 2018 Hasselblad Master Jorge de la Torriente. Creative content duo and Hasselblad content partners Daniel Rueda and Anna Devís remarked, “As architects, we really appreciated the effort of the photographer in building – no pun intended – a connection between fashion and architecture with her photography.”
As the grand prize winner, Clarissa Bonet will be flown to Hasselblad’s headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden for a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into making the industry-leading medium format cameras. Alongside her time at the factory, a guided tour to the Hasselblad Foundation and permanent exhibition, Hasselblad and the Moon, at the Gothenburg Museum of Art are on the itinerary. In addition to her visit and the previously awarded Weekly Winner prize of an XCD lens and Peak Design and PolarPro accessories, she will also receive her own 907X Special Edition camera, her choice of Peak Design Travel Collection bag, and the PolarPro Summit filter system and additional QuartzLine filter.
