Iranian-born photographer Forough Yavari has been crowned the overall winner of the International Portrait Photographer of the Year competition.
Her triumph stems from her breathtaking series titled 'Salvation', a creation inspired by the poetry of Langston Hughes, which she read at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The collection features portraits of Black women, enhanced by Yavari's incorporation of meticulously hand-crafted 24K gold pigment onto the printed images.
This marks the second time Yavari has topped the competition.
