Summer Flower Annemarie Farley
UK

Nominee

"Summer Flower"
I wanted to create a more dramatic effect with this flower to bring out its strong features. They are so pretty and delicate, so creating a more graphic effect prompted me to use black and white. When I look at a flower I generally assess whether the final image with be in colour or black and white, and even though I shoot digitally I still process in the image (in my mind) with the old dark room techniques. I knew exactly how I was going to print this image – keeping the stamen in white, contrasting against the dark grey of the flower centre. I wanted to keep the petals light and delicate just as I had photographed them. The image is successful as the flower is almost ‘tutu’ like – the ballet dancer curtseying to the audience!

Parrot Tulip #2 Dale M Reid
Canada

Nominee

"Parrot Tulip #2"
This is a silver gelatin print. The picture was created in 2011. What attracted me to the parrot tulip was the unique shape and the detail on the flower pedals. This shot was at full bloom and was taken close-up. In the darkroom, I had to balance the burning to bring out the detail and not to maintain the richness of the whites.

Doctor's Surgery Jonny Thompson
UK

Nominee

"Doctor's Surgery"
These are old medical instruments. I photographed them individually and reproduced them as lith prints. They work best as a set of six so I created the final piece with them all together. They each seem to have a different 'personality', some more long and elegant looking, some more stout and compact. All have a slightly macabre feel as you realise what they are for, the saw in particular.

Elephant Trophy 2010 {c} OWEN
USA

Nominee

"Elephant Trophy 2010"
Photograph from Trophies project. The photographs explore the existence of creatures killed for show. I capture their tragic story of innocence, anger, and fear through the expressions forced upon them by taxidermists and then modified by the lens. The animals emerge from a large black void that symbolizes death and forces us to imagine their missing bodies. I give them back their power through the photographs by choice of harsh, dramatic lighting. Within each photograph, the animals seem to speak to us; some are vengeful, threatening, angry, innocent, yet other are majestic and even calm.
