Cornish Roads (hedges) – in Flow, B3306

Hosted by Photocrowd, the judges for the FIX Photo Festival Expert Choice Awards are Laura Noble – curator and director of LA Noble Gallery, Magnum Photographer Chris Steele-Perkins, photographer/writer/filmmaker Lottie Davies, and Ben Brain – editor of Digital Camera Magazine. Of my photograph, the judges said:

“We loved the fractured light which felt harmonious from the lyrical visuals, we all thought of music when we saw this. The palette works really well and gives it an expressionistic tone. A really great stylistic use of the photographic form.”

The Experts also Commended another of my photographs from this series. You can see both of my photographs and all of the other winning photographs on Photocrowd.

Thank you to the judges for selecting my work and for their lovely feedback! I’m really excited to be part of the festival. Here are the details:

Here’s also a link to their lovely video of afternoon shadows  coincidentally framing my image of afternoon shadows on the bottom door:  https://www.facebook.com/pg/thecuratedfridge/videos/

My photograph is from a sketch-series of images exploring the light, shadows, and layers of reflections that appear momentarily in my everyday environment, documenting the juxtaposition of plants and trees – cultivated and wild – with built structures.

To find out more about The Curated Fridge take a look at this interesting article on Lenscratch.

Thank you Yorgos and Elin for including my work in this show!
