Wedding photographer Ackapol Dhuamrearngrom, was awarded 1st place in the Other Vendors category for the WPJA's 2017 Tri1 Photography Competition.
- The people working at a wedding are supposed to be unknown, unseen, and blend into the background, and I think this image mimics that idea. The pasta in front of his face makes devoid of any personality, and he is only there to serve. This image reflects that.
- The alliteration of form…pans and spoon handles, the shape of the tongs lifting pasta from a colander, the highlight striking the top edge of the forearm, and even, what appears to be, vegetables and bread in the background. Adding to the scene are the circular patterns throughout. The down-the-middle composition works perfectly in this circumstance, and I love the mystery of the obscured face.
