2022 Shortlist

Yana Wernicke is a German photographer currently based in a small town close to Frankfurt am Main.

In ‘Companions,’ Yana follows two young women who have established profound relationships with animals that are not normally considered human companions.

“I am interested in how the women’s desire for non-human companionship might speak to a larger desire of mankind to overcome its arguable loneliness as a species.’
