Spanning the globe and various genres within the medium, Developed: Five Emerging Photographers highlights some of the most surprising and excellent work produced by rising stars within the photographic world.
New York - April 28, 2016 Feature Shoot is proud to present the Second Annual Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards exhibition, showcasing the work of five diverse and exceptional fine art, documentary, and portrait photographers from around the world.
The Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards are given annually to a set of photographers whose voices are unique. The prize and subsequent exhibition, featuring five artworks from each winning artist, are geared not only towards jumpstarting the careers of promising new photographers but also towards contributing to fresh and forwardthinking discourse within the international photographic community.
This year, our jury of leading industry experts - Jessie Wender, Senior Photo Editor at National Geographic Magazine; Sarah Sudhoff, photographer and Director/Owner at Capsule Gallery; Kevin Wy Lee, photographer and Founder of Invisible Photographer Asia (IPA); Liz Lapp, curator and Content Manager at Yahoo - selected five photographers from an estimated 1,000 submissions. The exhibiting photographers will be Marlena Waldthausen, Camille Michel, Mariya Kozhanova, Lissa Rivera, and Kimberly Witham.
Marlena Waldthausen was chosen for her intimate series Brothers, chronicling the lives and close relationship between two deaf twins, one of whom is also entirely blind, living in Germany.
Camille Michel's series The Last Men tells the ancient tale of the Inuit fishermen of Uummannaq, Greenland, who are gradually losing their ties to the land in an increasingly globalized community.
Mariya Kozhanova focuses her lens on Russian youth, who in a precarious political climate, have clung to and become a part of the Japanese subculture of anime cosplay.
Lissa Rivera was selected for Beautiful Boy, a series confronting gender roles and aesthetics, made in collaboration with her romantic partner after he told her about his habit of donning women’s clothes in college.
Kimberly Witham's winning project On Ripeness and Rot takes inspiration from Dutch Golden Age paintings, incorporating fresh fruit and roadkill to create beautiful and disarming still lifes that speak to mortality, loss, and rebirth.

Canon's mirrorless EOS R5 comes with a ton of features and capability stemming from its design inside and out. Come along with us on a guided tour of Canon's new high-end, high-megapixel camera and check it out for yourself.
Announced alongside the EOS R5, the R6 offers a lot of the same technology but in a more affordable, slightly more enthusiast-focused model. Take a closer look.
Alongside the EOS R5 and R6, Canon has announced a brace of lenses, all in the short to long telephoto range. Filling out the 'long' end are one L-series zoom, and two innovative primes.
Alongside a trio of telephoto lenses, Canon also announced a new 85mm this week. The RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM is a compact, affordable alternative to the pro-oriented 85mm F1.2L.
The EOS R5 has been a long time coming – we knew it had 8K and we knew it had an AF joystick. But now that's it's here, what is it really like to use? Find out in our initial review based on hands-on time with the camera.
The R6 doesn't promise quite such headline-grabbing specs as its big brother, but it still packs a punch, whether you shoot stills, video or both.

Canon has officially released the long-awaited EOS R5, the company's top-end full-frame mirrorless camera. Featuring a new 45MP CMOS sensor, Dual Pixel AF II system, 8K video capture and 20 fps bursts, this is the RF-mount camera we've been waiting for.
Although the Canon EOS R6 doesn't have the 45MP sensor and 8K video capture of the higher-end R5, it's still an incredibly capable camera with specs that outshine similarly priced peers.
The Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM is the company's first super-zoom lens for RF-mount. Despite a relatively slow aperture range, it's very versatile, offering five stops of stabilization, weather-sealing and compatibility with Canon's new teleconverters.
Canon's RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM is an inexpensive telephoto prime lens with a minimum focus distance of just 0.35m (14") and a 0.5x magnification. When attached to the new R5 and R6, it offers a whopping eight stops of shake reduction.
Canon has announced a pair of super-telephoto fixed-aperture primes. The 600mm and 800mm use diffractive optics to keep their size and weight down. They'll also be compatible with new 1.4x and 2x RF teleconverters.

Sony has added a 12-24mm F2.8 to its top-shelf 'G Master' series of lenses. It's the widest constant F2.8 zoom currently offered for full-frame, with a hefty price tag to match: it will sell for $3000 when it ships in mid-August.
Take a look at the view from Sony's new ultra-wide F2.8 zoom – we paired it with the a7R IV for some initial shooting.
