'Masks of Society' by Marius Vieth.


German photographer Marius Vieth has been named the winner of the CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year competition for 2014 with the image 'Masks of Society.

The theme of the competition was ‘Cities at Work’ and photographers around the world are asked to capture the essence and reality of the working life of a city, with all of its beauty and day-to-day routine. 

Martin Samworth, Chief Executive Officer, EMEA, CBRE said: “ Vieth’s image captures a perfect moment where someone is fully immersed in a detailed element of their work. It is a quiet moment of precision in a hectic urban setting.”

Mr. Vieth, who has won a luxury photography safari, said: “Being named the 2014 CBRE Urban Photographer of the Year is a fantastic achievement. Street photography has been a passion of mine for many years and I knew my ‘Mask of Society’ image was the perfect shot for the competition’s ‘Cities at Work’ brief. I’m constantly looking for new and interesting angles of urban life and its constantly changing landscape never fails to challenge me.”
