The judges' reasoning: "His works deal with different representations of masculinity; in the tension that exists between the masculine-normative and homo-erotic, while undermining the conventions in selecting the photographed subject and manner of presenting them. Among the imagery, topics and photographed subjects, he inserts his personal story. Atzili's works examine personal, familial and national boundaries; masculinity and soccer, the genre of pregnancy and hetronormative/ queer family photography, and more."
