Good news from LensCulture

I recently received a very pleasantly surprising email from LensCulture…

LensCulture told me that they complete an annual review each year of all submissions to all their competitions – this is thousands of submissions from 145 countries.  In the review they look at the ratings of all the submissions to find out which entries were highly-rated.

My series, ‘Cornish Roads (hedges), in Flow‘ was among the highly-rated entries for the whole year – thank you LensCulture for the encouragement!

Cornish Roads (hedges), in Flow – B3311 (1)

I entered this series into their Earth Awards 2015 competition – showcasing photography inspired by our planet. This image (above) was also featured in their Competition Gallery.

Cornish Roads (hedges), in Flow‘ is an abstract study of time, colour and movement in the vibrant hedges of Cornwall’s ancient, winding roads. The series also explores the Flow State – where your attention is so focused that existence is temporarily suspended as you become one with an activity.

For almost 10 years, LensCulture has become one of the most authoritative resources for contemporary photography, committed to discovering and promoting the best of the global photography community. They look for exciting work from every continent, and from diverse points of view: documentary, fine art, nature, photojournalism, activism, street photography, sports, fashion, poetic, personal, abstract and human.

Shot entirely on an iphone5s ‘Cornish Roads (hedges), in Flow’ is an abstract study of time, colour, movement, and the flow-state, captured in the vibrant hedges that line some of Cornwall’s twisting ancient roads. You can see the series in full on my LensCulture profile, and also my website.

The inaugural LensCulture Earth Awards is their first call for photography focused on the planet.

From artful and conceptual examinations of our diverse relationships to Earth, to journalistic exposés of environmental concerns or the stories of the good work being done to address them, photography is a force that defines how we see—and live in—the world.
