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.”
