We speak to Marie Laigneau the 1st runner up of our 2nd #streetphotography #photocontest #London #photography

The human stories that I capture are not real – they are projections of my own dreams, fears, and hopes. When I saw this old man walking in front of me, I felt as if I was encountering a character in my dreams. The Old wise man whose head lives in the clouds. The patterns of light and shapes surrounding his expressive face made him look all the stranger, and yet, somewhat familiar to me – so I shot right away, as I always do, never thinking twice…
You can see the exhibition at The Bridge Lounge until October.

Congratulations to Marie Laigneau 1st runner up in our #streetphotography #photocontest #London

Our judge, Paul Russell, explains why he selected Marie’s image:-

A timeless piece of dramatic street photography that seems to ask the questions – who is this person, and just what era of London are we in here?
