The GoSeeAWARDS 2023 : Linda Schaeffler wins Gold, Silver goes to Tobias Habermann, Bronze is shared by Artistspool and Anouk Nitsche, and Julia Buruleva is voted favorite of the public.
As Andrea Vollmer-Hess, photo editor, syndication and rights manager of VOGUE Germany, as well as GoSeeAWARDS juror, put it in an interview with GoSee : “It’s not about a single image; as producers or photo editors, we want to see if a photographer can photograph a story – that’s the only way to truly see their individual style. A photo shoot is always like a theater production: One scene alone doesn’t make a story. Only when you have seen all scenes do you understand what it is all about. Only then do you see if a photographer can make a topic come to life in a photo spread. As a photographer, you should always be curious, continue to evolve, and you can only do so if you see a lot and are open to new things.”
Photographer and DOP Linda Schaeffler – who is also the GoSeeAWARDS GOLD winner – has dealt intensively with the topic of AI. She has not only developed an image but also the screenplay for a multi-part film. Her photos ensnare viewers, make them curious and also function as a solitaire.
SILVER winner Tobias Habermann plays with the cloud as a motif which he positions in various urban scenarios to tell a beautiful poetic story.
The creative team of Ralph Mecke, fashion editor Yilmaz Aktepe and hair & makeup artist Marco Hülsebus, both artists c/o ARTISTSPOOL, realized a slightly dark and captivating fashion spread including a video. They share third place with fashion photographer Anouk Nitsche.
Julia Buruleva took home the win in our Public Voting. SYNCHRONIZATION – the self-portrait project by Julia BURULEVA, represented by ROCKENFELLER & GÖBELS, combines elements of photography, land art, performance and digital art. (GoSee reported).

‘All Sorts of Things’ bears witness to the growing understanding of the fashion industry of what is ‘normal’. Started by a Berlin-based creative team, made up of directors Ale Ruiz-Zorrilla and Rosa Lisa DI NATALE with photographer Michele DI DIO c/o FREDA+WOOLF, stylist Ourania Marmara, producer Ronja Prinz and casting director Julie Sinios, the project is dedicated to the experiences of eight different models (Eren, Cora, Gigi, James, Lenny, Lukas, Nathalie & Vale) – of various age groups, ethnicities, body types and identities.
In the photo series, the stylist uses different items of clothing to distort and improve the body shapes of the models. The photos challenge established fashion standards with which we are confronted every day by means of exaggerated ruffled bodices which bloat the body to XXL proportions, or swirled shoulder pads and elegant body armor which transform the wearer into imposing statue-esque figures.
“I always wondered who sets (the) standards in terms of fashion and beauty. Who decides that a specific body type is worth showing and others not?” says stylist Mamara. “I was expecting fashion brands and PRs to happily support me in terms of getting the outfits for the story, but when I wrote (that) we were going to have a cast of eight models with diverse body types, everyone assumed that I was looking for bigger sizes, so half of the brands said they couldn’t support us.”
