West – May 2017 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

1st) ­ A heavy topic with photos that tell the full depth of the story. We appreciated the image selection and the editing was great ­ included a mixture of compositions: close, medium, wide. 2nd)­ The series does a great job of telling the story of a person and not an addiction. The images are intimate, and offer a variety of compositions. We feel the edit could be tightened up a bit and the sequencing could be re­arranged to tell the story in a more concise way. 3rd)­ We appreciated the edit and sequencing very much. There weren’t any images that felt unnecessary. It would be great to see a portrait or detail shot to round out the sequencing.
