POLIS/ITLR Fieldwork Photography Competition 1st prize: Exterior shot of Kuala Lumpur High Court

Written by Nichoas Chan

We are pleased to present the winners of the 2020 POLIS/ITLR Fieldwork Photography Competition. This photo by Nicholas Chan, a PhD candidate in the Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge, won first prize. The judges felt that the lack of 'humanity’ was particularly poignant and liked the way the picture made one look at it and the system it represents in a particular light. They also thought it was a well-composed photograph, with effective use of black and white and colour.
