Judges

  • The contrast of the gun and the bride is a rare find. This picture was haunting because of this juxtaposition and because of the expression on the bride's face. Definitely storytelling and a powerful image in any contest.
  • A striking and unsettling image. Feels much more journalistic than nuptial. The bride's expression is storytelling and I also like the added detail of the hand at the right reaching in.
  • In the United States we don’t normally catch a ride to the wedding accompanied by an AK-47. The greatest fears experienced by most brides worldwide is more likely related to the details of the day such as makeup, hair, or flowers. And yet, security is a primary concern in many locales. Here, the all-consuming visual of an assault rifle is juxtaposed with a bride and her white veil, her brow furrowed in worry or anticipation. We can only hope that she is thinking only of her desire for a beautiful celebration of marriage.
