Judges Comments

The strongest entry of the month, a portrait series showing survivors holding suicide victims pictures brought an emotional response to the judges. Strong lighting and having them produced in black and white helped cement the seriousness of the subject. In second place, the portrait of the winning coach was well though thought out with the color scheme of black, white, and red. The photograph of the immigrant’s grandson in a period historical building was a thoughtful moment when the subject hit the light in the doorway.
