Photography is an art form. A photographer forms an intimate relationship with their camera and the objects that they are photographing. Time, patience and a sharp eye can transform a subject into something extraordinary. The photographers who participated in this month’s event are clearly artists who have excelled at their craft. There were 36 submissions. Each one tells a story about the photographer and the subject. I am so honored to have hosted this event. It gave me the opportunity to check out new-to-me photographers who I will eagerly follow in the future. Many thanks to Soma, Sneh, Kulsum and Barb for serving as our judges. They definitely had a tough and important job.
Without further ado, I am pleased to announce the winners.
