We are thrilled to announce the recipients of our second edition of the PhotoVogue Festival Grant in collaboration with Studio RM, the prestigious creative studio with offices in London and New York, which specializes in color grading and post production for film, print and digital.
The artists Adeolu Osibodu and Delali Ayivi had the most compelling and meaningful submissions from our Global Open Call. They will each receive a 5000€ cash grant by Studio RM to further their artistic growth.
“Adeolu and Delali are extremely talented artists. They both have a very distinctive style. Their images are powerful, vibrant and imbued with issues of social justice without ever being didactic. Theirs is the kind of creativity that can produce social change by changing people’s gaze. Adeolu and Delali are a perfect example of the artists we want to empower with PhotoVogue. I’m thankful to Studio RM for this opportunity, for their commitment and for their constant support of young artists”.
“Congratulations to Adeolu Osibodu and Delali Ayivi!’ says Robert Moore, Studio RM’s founder. “We’re thrilled to have partnered with the PhotoVogue Festival for the second year. It’s a wonderful opportunity to discover new artists who are exploring new ideas in photography and film. As a studio whose ethos is about always discovering and supporting new talent, Studio RM is proud to help contribute to a more inclusive and accessible industry”
The mission of PhotoVogue has always been to support talent and build a future based on diversity, awareness, ethics and inclusivity within the fashion and visual industries. Those values are also championed at the PhotoVogue Festival, which seeks to engage the most promising artists through exhibitions, digital and online showcases and the production of branded content and stories.
The Grant is born out of shared values between the PhotoVogue Festival and Studio RM, which has always been committed to discovering and supporting talented photographers and video-makers and to creating a fairer and more inclusive visual industry. Studio RM was founded by Robert Moore in 2010 and, besides collaborating with established artists such as Zoë Ghertner, Glen Luchford, Charlotte Wales, Campbell Addy, Jack Davison, Alasdair McLellan and Adrienne Raquel to name a few, aims to help nurturing young creatives’ unique vision.
Their recent launch, “Studio RM Discovers”, features a series of interviews with new and extraordinary talents shaping the industry and can be viewed on all their social media platforms.
