The main prize

The main prize

Rebekka Bohley's "Into the Jungle" has won the hearts of the Magic Moments 2021 competition jury. The powerful image composition slowly reveals new details to the viewer and results in a subliminal experience of the scene. Vibrant colours and a great view of the abandoned hut through the leaves create a fairytale-like atmosphere in this enchanted forest in the middle of the Saarland near Saarwellingen. A truly magical moment!
