New Moon
Client: Seoul Square
This project was commissioned and created as a LED projection for Seoul Square – the world’s biggest LED media wall. New Moon is the film to celebrate ‘Chuseok’, the biggest harvest festival in Korea. The full moon is a very significant symbol for this festive season as it represents the new start and the celebration of the good harvest. The film starts slowly but intensity builds. It’s dynamic and energetic. The excitement builds and we see an explosion of celebration: the spirit of the ‘Chuseok’ festival.

Salvo door knock appeal
Client: Salvation Army
The photography for this Salvation Army campaign drew on the visual language of painting, and in many ways harks back to the work of Jean-François Millet (for inspiration) but recontextualised in an urban inner-city environment. The success of this image comes from a shared understanding of the genre and the gravity of the situation that this family finds themselves in. Through the styling and treatment, this is not a factual documentary image, instead an illustration of a situation.

Winner Photography: Bronek Kozka - Salvo door knock appeal
