Marshall I

20" x 16"

Award: Honorable Mention 


Juror's Note: This image immediately commanded my attention for both the strong chiaroscuro light, warm color and the subject staring at the viewer. Marshall’s eyes command attention. Staring right at the viewer, they reminded me of some of Yousuf Karsh’s works, like his portrait of Castro, or even Vermeer and the Lady with Pearl Earring. Then I wonder, why Marshall is starkly naked from his pants up. So I’m intrigued by the combination of strong light, warm tones of the human figure and the questions the photograph made me ask.
