Judges Comments

  • It's the suspenders. This photo works on many, many levels, using the whole frame to tell us a remarkably complete story. The man's unfastened suspenders tell us, for example, that he was in the middle of dressing himself when he was called away to serve as a clothesline. In spite of being complex in it storytelling, there are few stray elements to distract us from the funny tale this picture tells.
