2018 Your Greatest Street Scene Contest Winners
GRAND PRIZE WINNER: By Dale Johnson
Title: Load Of Barrels
One of the most rewarding parts of travel is the chance to experience new places, people and cultures. I love to see how people live in other parts of the world. Madagascar was no exception. I was in Antananarivo for work and so didn’t have a lot of time for photography, but always travel with at least one camera. I hired a local driver to show me around and, along the way, came across this guy carrying his load of barrels through traffic. I shot this hand held out the window as we drove by. Not a scene that you see every day.
Nikon D800E, AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm F2.8G ED at 24mm. Exposure: 1/3200 sec., ƒ/3.5, ISO 400.
SECOND PRIZE: By Kris Desautels
Title: Post Industrial Confusion
Post Industrial Confusion is one image within a larger series I’m currently working on. Using an urban setting, this playground of monumental structures that we’ve built, I’m examining the loneliness, isolation and fear through the shadows they cast. These shadows seem too great to be overcome. The powerlessness and fear of being swallowed whole by this darkness at times overtakes me. However, the presence of light gives me hope. This deep contrast isolates my subjects, revealing them between extreme darkness and bright lights. It’s within these extremes that I find our world living today.
Fujifilm X-T20, FUJINON XF18-55mm F2.8-4 R LM OIS at 55mm. Exposure: 1/150 sec., ƒ/4.5, ISO 400.
THIRD PRIZE: By Jonathan Brooks
Title: Over The Rainbow
This photograph was taken on the streets of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District neighborhood. The trendy area is home to over 70 galleries, museums and collections. Wynwood is well-known for showcasing an array of street art, graffiti and wall murals. While taking a drive through the area on a hot and sunny Miami Sunday afternoon, I took the image to include in my ’Black Umbrellas’ series. I thought the cloudy skies of the wall mural meeting the yellow brick sidewalk were the perfect background. In 2014, the photograph won Best In Show/Photo Of The Year at the inaugural Miami Photo Salon Festival during Miami’s prestigious Art Week.
Canon PowerShot SX20 IS. Exposure: 1/1250 sec., ƒ/4, ISO 80.
