Award-winning photography by Polona Avanzo

I have always been interested in photography but my curiosity and love for nature led me to study forestry. However, my passion for photography never left me. After my degree in forestry, I started to study photography as well. Being a mum of two, I know how joyful and difficult at the same time parenthood is, I decided to combine my two passions in documentary family photography – real and memorable moments of everyday life.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
