Nick Hannes, 2018 ZEISS Photography Award winner, comments: “Winning the Zeiss Photography Award 2018 for ‘Garden of Delight’ has given great extra visibility for my project, both through repetitive online publications and through portfolios in the regular media and on photography platforms. Several of the artworks have become widely-recognised due to the attention brought by the Award.”
