Meet the Hero behind the photo!

#Light2019 has been turned off, meaning one thing only… we have a new Hero! Meet him now and discover his story! 👇

Meet Henry Do(aka @henrydo), our #Light2019 Hero from the USA whose stunning photo has won him $1,000 + 100,000 ⭐️s!

“My name is Henry do, I was born and raised in Saigon, Vietnam but immigrated to the United States at the age of 12 with my aunt to pursue the American dream.  My love for photography came about at the age of 18 when I picked up a digital camera to shoot my very first car!

Henry Do – Our #Light2019 Hero!

I started to shoot seriously after opportunities arose for me to travel outside of the United States. Now I currently travel around the world as a freelance photographer, capturing beautiful imagery from above.

My love for seeking new destinations and my passion for photography has led to the creation of some of the most beautiful images that are truly unique and captivating to viewers around the world.  Over the years, I developed my aerial photography skills and my eye for well-executed images that offer a unique perspective of our beautiful planet, just like my winning #Light2019 photo of the Sagrada Familia. I am over the moon to have won one of AGORA’s global photo Contests and want to thank everyone involved. And who knows, maybe it’s not the last time!”

Henry’s winning photo – Street Lights in Barcelona

The guest judge for this Contest has been photographer Bimo Pradityo

#Light2019 Guest Judge Bimo Pradityo

We called upon Bimo Pradityo (@_bimo), 11 time Top 50 photographer, to lend the Community a hand with choosing the Hero!

“My name is Bimo Pradityo, I’m from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I’m a professional architect who has been in love with photography since childhood. My love for photography was influenced by my father who was also an architect and did photography as a hobby as well. Light is one of my favorite things to incorporate into my work and so it’s been a real honour to judge AGORA’s #Lught2019 Contest and choose the winner!”

Guest Judge’s selection criteria: “I chose @henrydo’s photo because the light of this city at night reveals a beauty that words cannot express. The sunset in the background just completes this amazing shot. A blend of dusk and the city of Barcelona are captured perfectly in a breathtaking photograph, congratulations!”

On behalf of the entire AGORA Team, congratulations to Henry Do for becoming the Hero! 👏🎉

There is a new Hero every week, so don’t forget to check out our previous winners such as the #Yellow2019 or the #RoadTrip2019 Heroes.
