Boris Eldagsen tricked competition organisers with his entry, Pseudomnesia: The Electrician – a haunting close-up of two women in a grainy sepia which won the creative open category.
He stunned organisers by rejecting the award, claiming that ‘AI is not photography’ – as he hopes to create a discussion surrounding the future of art.
