Swedish Photographer Wins Getty Images Portrait Prize

Ten thousand dollars; an exhibit at Polka Galerie in Paris. That’s the enviable combo recently awarded to photographer Maja Daniels.

The Swedish-born Daniels is the winner of the first Contour by Getty Images Portrait Prize. She beat out 720 entrants from a total of 68 countries.

The competition was aimed at emerging photographers who’ve been at it for five years or less, and featured famed fashion lenser Peter Lindbergh as main judge. The video above seems to indicate that Daniels currently has a thing for photographing closely-related human subject pairs. Congrats to her on this very impressive win; view Daniels’ winning pic here.
