You’ll also see what it takes to shoot a synchronised swimming team, in this month’s One to One pro masterclass with events photographer Cat Wynn.

Our Hotshots gallery showcases the winners of the GCCA Concrete in Life Awards 2022. 

This annual competition sees amateur and professional photographers strive to capture what concrete means to their daily lives – and while this might not be a topic at the forefront of everyone’s minds, the resulting images are often epic in scope and always thought-provoking.

This month’s main photographer interview focuses on Atlantic Cowboy, a new book from leading international documentary photographer Andrea Gjestvang. 

Gjestvang spent six years photographing the work on the Faroes, drawn to these windswept islands to explore the effects of female flight on a traditional male-centric community – many young Faroese women decamp to continental Europe after leaving school. 

An insightful examination of community and masculinity, you can find out more about the book and its photographs from page 120.
