A Swiss photographer who recently won two international photo awards was stripped of her accolades.
when it was revealed that she didn’t actually take the photos and that she was passing off a Thai photographers work as hers.
Madeleine Joseph Fierz was awarded first place in the Moscow International Foto Awards and Second Place in the Fine Art Photo Award using photos that were taken by Thai photographer Sasin Tipchai, after he posted his works online.
The revelation that Fierz had used Sasin’s work came to light on Sunday and she was disqualified.
Sasin took to social media to out the cheeky Swiss snapper who received over $3000 (100,000) baht in prize money for Sasins works.
A member of the Jury for the Moscow International Foto Awards responded to Sasin on social media thanking him for bringing the incident to their attention.
The photos have since been removed from the two awards websites.
