In the Light

24" x 18"

Award: Honorable Mention 


Juror's Note: The starkness of this image grabbed my attention. Strong black lines marched diagonally across on a mottled textured background at the top. Then another group of dark lines at the bottom. And these dark marching lines all framed by black vertical border. The coarse textured background provides a stage with visual interest for the marching lines. Then there is mystery. What is that hanging roller, that hints of an empty toilet paper holder. And what’s it doing there, alone, all empty? The little sign at the bottom provides a hint, maybe. And what is that little dark rectangle intruding from the top? So marching shadows, texture and mystery drew me to this image, making a variation on the the play of stark shadows often seen in photographs.
