The winners from the first half of the 2019 B&W Child Photo Competition have recently been announced, revealing a charming collection of black and white photography that captures the magic of childhood around the world. The international photography competition chose the winning images from four different categories—Portrait, Lifestyle, Fine Art, and Documentary & Street.

French photographer Antoine Jonquiere won 1st place in the Portrait category for his striking image titled The Boy & The Earth. It beautifully captures the profile of a young African boy, set against a chalky, cracked patch of earth. Winning 1st place in the Fine Art category, Polish photographer Kamila J. Gruss’s image, Dark, has an incredibly ethereal charm, and perfectly captures the delicate beauty of her young female subject.

Showcasing a more mischievous side of childhood, Australian photographer Helen Whittle won 1st place in the Lifestyle category for her playful image titled Noodles at Four AM. And in the Documentary & Street category, Chinese photographer Ya Kuang won 1st place for his photo, Desire, capturing the harsh desperation seen in children suffering in poverty.
