2020-21 PPD POM

October 2020 PPD Print of the Month (POM)

David Price, EPSA, of Cockermouth, Cumbria, England wins with his First Place Star Mono print, Antigonous.

This month’s judge, Tom Hady, APSA, MPSA tells us why: “Recently, I saw a quotation attributed to Edward Steichen, “A portrait is not made in the camera but on both sides of it.” This image is a good example. David Price used the tools well. The photo is sharp, the exposure brings out full tonality, and the lighting makes the face seem three-dimensional. On the other side of the camera, we get the feeling that we know something of the personality of the young man. He seems to be a happy person, perhaps inclined to clown a bit. He’s someone we might like to meet.”
