Pink Lady® is proud to have been the headline sponsor of the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year competition since its launch in 2011.
“We’ve always believed that there is great synergy between the Pink Lady® brand, which has uncompromising quality at its core and the ethos of the awards, which celebrate the very best in food photography and film,” says Peter Durose, Managing Director of Coregeo®, the Master Licensor of Pink Lady® in the UK.
“We have been delighted to see how the awards have grown in stature and scope, so that finalists and winners are recognised for their achievements internationally. Food imagery is significant in all our lives, whether it’s a snap on a mobile phone, a compelling photograph in a newspaper or a beautifully-lit image on an advertising hoarding on the way home. There are so many talented food photographers out there and the Food Photographer of the Year Awards provide a valuable platform to give the best in their field the recognition they deserve.”
The Foundation has as its aim to foster and make Finnish historical photography and film known, especially regarding Heikki Aho’s, Björn Soldan’s, Claire Aho’s and the film production company Aho & Soldan’s production.
The pioneering Finnish photographers and filmmakers, Heikki Aho (1895-1961), Björn Soldan (1902-1953), Claire Aho (1925-2015). HEIKKI AHO and BJÖRN SOLDAN were among the leading photographers and documentary filmmakers of their time. Their father was the author and journalist Juhani Aho (1861-1921), married to artist Venny Soldan-Brofeldt (1863-1945) – the “artist couple” of their era. In 1924 Heikki and Björn established their legendary production company AHO & SOLDAN, producing well over 400 films and laying the foundations for the Finnish documentary tradition.
Heikki’s daughter CLAIRE AHO, “The Grand Old Lady of Finnish Photography” - who received her first camera from her father at the age of 10 - joined Aho & Soldan in the late 1940´s. Having opened her own commercial studio she became a pioneer of colour photography and was especially active in the 1950s and 1960s. Claire Aho´s photographs, full of wit, taken some 60-70 years ago, could as well have been taken today. They are a delightful display of Claire´s ‘Selective Eye’, her sense of composition, her humour, but above all her acute sense of colour.
The Foundation is pleased to be a partner with Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2020 in presenting the new Claire Aho Award for Women Photographers.
