Mondrianish / Luis Portelles, 3rd Place / 2016 / “While exploring abstract photography, a friend introduced me to Piet Mondrian and Franco Fontana. During my daily commute to work, in Laval where I live, I spotted this colourful building which reminded me of both artists. Since the place is a kindergarten, I had to wait for the weekend to explore it without arising suspicious concerns. I took several shots of the place but the strong broken diagonal line and the round shape of the movement sensors that contrast with the straight angles made this image my favourite.” © Luis Portelles, 3rd Place, Canada, National Award, 2016 Sony World Photography Awards.
