International Garden Photographer of the Year

Andrea Pozzi –  1st place – Breathing Spaces – Location Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile

“The sun had already risen and the dawn had been incredible. Wandering through the vegetation, however, I realised that the essence of the territory was only revealing itself in that moment. The extraordinary colours of the sunrise had dissolved, leaving behind a unique intimate feeling amongst one of the most beautiful mountain ranges on Earth..”


 © Andrea Pozzi, International Garden Photographer of the Year 2019



Andrea Pozzi is an adventurer and a visual storyteller.

He was born in Bormio, an alpine jewel of Italy, in the autumn of 1984.

Since an early age, he has always been fascinated by distant lands, places where contact with nature is fundamental and where civilisation has been unable to take root. The excitement behind a new experience, a new landscape or a new encounter is what gives him life; the growing desire for discovery, which becomes stronger with every new journey, has given birth to his own personal photographic (but not only) project, FORGOTTENLANDS. 

International Garden Photographer of the Year is the world’s premier competition and exhibition specialising in garden, plant, flower and botanical photography. International Garden Photographer of the Year is wholly owned and organised by Garden World Images Ltd.
