Ninja Jump Djeneba Aduayom
USA

Nominee

"Ninja Jump"
Movement is a type of expression, an art. It shows freedom, fashion and feelings in many different ways. I always feel compelled to grasp an emotion and always embark in a "catch me if you can" type of image when I can. I love spontaneity and I like to find images that are a burst of the moment. The excitement is to try and catch what sometimes is really difficult in non ideal conditions.
