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.
Our judge, Paul Russell, tells us why he chose Liliana’s image:-
Again, the person-shot-through-coffee-shop-window is fast becoming a modern street photography standard, but this is a lovely wide-angle variant. A young woman, a dog, a fox and a deer behind glass – we are peering into the twilight world of the urban zoo…
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?
Our judge, Paul Russell, tell us why he selected Pau’s winning image:-
I chose Pau Buscato’s photo as he has taken a theme that has rapidly become cliched subject matter – the selfie stick camera shot – and made something interesting and humorous, given the bleak location. A nice dash of pink as well, and daring composition, going so close to the edge of the frame.
Congratulations to the following photographers who have been selected by Paul Russell as his top 20 images in our second street photography. They will be exhibited in London and the top 3 cash prizes winners will be announced on the first day of the exhibition (date in June TBC).
