“AN INSTANT” – Announcing the winners
We’re delighted to present the results of Life Framer edition II’s seventh theme! Life is a gas, and so for this theme we asked you to forget the past, put the future on hold, and focus on the now – a detail, an expression, an action, a feeling. The photography competition was judged by Matt Eich.
Matt is a much sought-after independent photographer born and based in Virginia, USA. His work centres on social documentary storytelling, exploring individuals and communities, the issues they face and their sense of identity – from his own backyard and family to the societies of Peru, Rwanda, Botswana, India, Mexico and the United Kingdom. He said about the selection:
“I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of interpretations of the theme “An Instant.” I gravitated towards frames where the light, color, form and content all coalesced. Selecting and ranking images can seem like an arbitrary task, but in the end I was thinking about images that have staying power … photographs that diffuse the temporary nature of the ‘instant’.”
