Dressmaker by Krzysztof Maksymowicz (1st Prize)

Photography has been a passion of mine for several years; it is my hobby, my refuge from work and daily life. When taking this photograph I was trying to capture a universal occupational safety image, something that could apply to every person. And so I came up with the idea to photograph a sewing woman (dressmaker) with a needle and a thimble – a tool which is slowly becoming forgotten. The picture is symbolic, capturing risk prevention in its most basic form.
