Karan Kapoor selected for AOP Open photography award

October 10 2011
Karan Kapoor selected for AOP Open photography award Karan has been selected for the AOP Open 2011 awards and exhibition, which is open both to the public and to the Association Of Photographers. The picture selected is from a personal series Karan shot in Goa, India, over a number of years. "The image selected for the AOP Open is from a personal project I shot in Goa over the years," explains Karan. "It started in the mid 1980s, a long time before the digital era. I spent a load of time riding around the interior unknown parts of Goa, capturing a world that was very different from most people's perception of Goa and indeed of India. I suppose I was searching for the real old Goa. It was a great time: just me, my Royal Enfield motorbike and my Hasselblad 503. The image holds special memories of a great time for me and that's partly why I chose it when thinking which image to enter into this contest." The AOP Open is run by the Association of Photographers and has been running for 11 years, attracting around 1,500 global entries annually. It is the only photography competition which gives professionals and amateurs the chance to compete on equal terms. There are no categories or themes, so each photographer has completely free choice when it comes to submitting work. In 2010, the AOP open attracted over 4000 voters. Add your voice to the vote this year! Vote for your favourite image in the Public Choice award.
