VII Member Mary Gelman has been selected to attend the prestigious Joop Swart Masterclass. Chosen from 198 candidates, Saint Petersburg-based Mary is one of 24 participants from 20 different countries.

The masterclass is named after Joop Swart, a passionate supporter of photographic talent who played a major role in the foundation’s history, first as the photo contest jury chair from 1966 to 1974, and then as a member of the foundation’s board from 1970 until his death in 1994. The participants are selected by an independent selection committee, based on a nomination process.
