Winnaars van de Close-up fotowedstrijd: zo mooi zijn dieren, paddenstoelen en planten van heel dichtbij

De Close-up Photographer of the Year wedstrijd beloont foto's die ons de wereld op een hele andere manier tonen: van heel dichtbij. Daardoor zie je prachtige details van dieren, paddenstoelen en planten waar je normaal overheen kijkt.

De Noorse fotograaf Pal Hermansen heeft de 'Close-up Photographer of the Year' wedstrijd gewonnen met een foto van alle insecten die hij vond in een kapotte buitenlamp bij zijn huis. Hermansen wil met deze foto de diversiteit van dieren in onze nabije omgeving laten zien. Al deze kleine dieren zien we in het dagelijks leven over het hoofd.

Dit jaar ontving de jury meer dan 9.000 foto's uit 56 landen in negen categorieën: dieren, insecten, planten en fungi, intiem landschap, onderwater, vlinders en insecten, door mensen gemaakt, micro en jonge fotografen (tot en met 17 jaar).

Alle winnaars zijn te zien op de website Close-up Photographer of the Year. Bekijk ook de winnaars van vorig jaar.
