2018-19 PPD POM

February 2019 PPD Print of the Month (POM)

David Price, of Cockermouth, UK, wins this time with his first place Star Color, Waiting for Daddy.

The judge, David Halgrimson, explains: “Reminds me of the 1936 image of Florence Owens Thompson during the dust bowl. This image tells a strong story of a woman and child who appear to be suffering from poverty. Her far look for hope and her son who looks to be ill is heart wrenching. The colors contribute to the overall story. It is compelling yet difficult to view. A very strong image with great impact. The soft color and tones also lend well to the subjects.”
