The three winners will be selected by the main jury at the Fotobookfestival Kassel.

Tediousphilia is an ongoing new book project in collaboration with the Art Director Ramon Pez, based on my photographic series which documents the boringness and tedium suffered by vernacular webcam sex-performer couples in the standby, before-sex moment in the not-that-virtual second-life.
