Sony World Photography Awards - 2nd Place, 'Henkō' by plainpicture photographer Massimo Giovannini

'Henkō' by plainpicture photographer Massimo Giovannini:

Henkō - a Japanese word composed of kanjis meaning “change” and “variable/unusual light” - conveys the idea of a shifting light which transforms our perception of the objects it illuminates. The work is not intended to trick the viewer, only to introduce doubt; to make them question preconceived ideas on gender and the presumed veracity of even the most candid photographic image.
