He won the prestigious award in spring this year in the Architecture category for his series Lost: Paris.
Lost: Paris is a unique study of the psychological relationships between the human and the city. The photographer himself admitted that he did not try to capture a specific moment, event or place. He was looking for a new way of comprehending the urban environment.
