Pray­ing with Food

For the sec­ond year in a row, the over­all winner of Pink Lady Food Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year comes from Bangladesh. Noor’s im­age de­picts a sec­tion of the Hindu com­mu­nity pre­par­ing to break a day-long fast in one of the lo­cal tem­ples in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Noor cre­ated an un­usual com­po­si­tion by shoot­ing from di­rectly above. The sin­gle empty space adds an in­trigu­ing el­e­ment. ‘I took this from the rooftop of a seven-storey build­ing,’ ex­plains Noor. ‘I took it us­ing an 85mm lens, which of­fered a per­fect com­po­si­tion of the scene. No crop was nec­es­sary – this is 100% of the im­age.’
