For the series category, Russian photographer Marina Kazakova won the Black & White Series of the Year 2019, with a $3000 cash prize.

Her series, “The Poetics of Childhood” is “expressed in a psychological journey through intimate visions of private life, showing that there are stories worth telling all around us. The poetics of childhood: boundless sensuality, confidence, and a vast need for love, perhaps more so than in any other period of life.”
