OPEN CALL – Winning images from our recent Open Call - judged by Martin Parr - announced. • Honorary Mention by Eloi Du Bois from his series My Fantastic Americans. • He says of it – “When I first arrived from France to the USA I was amazed how people can really be what they choose to be, and how deeply they express their beliefs and exteriorize their originality or culture. For someone who likes taking portraits it's a perfect playground.” • Jury’s comment - "Eloi’s street portrait is a dazzling personification of modern America – bold and brash and beautiful. Proud and loud. By shooting from a low viewpoint he emphasizes her stature, cleverly juxtaposing her against the Empire State Building (we think) and in doing so accentuating her larger-than-life spirit. It’s a superbly executed character study that speaks of both the subject, and her cultural environment.” – Life Framer • Head to www.life-framer.com/winners to discover the full shortlist and judge’s comments - twenty images that inspire and challenge in equal measure. • #lifeframer#eloidubois#opencall#streetphotography#streetportrait#usa#streetshot#portraiture#analog#america#adventureeveryday#contemporaryart#visualgang#lifeframerstories
Fredrik Backman // All people at root are time optimists. We always think there's enough time to do things with other people. Time to say things to them. And then something happens and then we stand there holding on to words like 'if'.
