Honorable Mention

"On Life's Journey"
For this young boy, his life lies ahead of him still. A Cuban street image.

Biography: I was born in South Africa and am currently living and working in Switzerland. I have been taking pictures since 1968, when I was 10 years old, starting with a simple DIANA 620 plastic camera. In my early days I liked doing Landscape Photography as well as Street Photography. Today I would describe my photography style as opportunistic. Opportunistic to me means taking the picture if it somehow resonates with my visual system at that instant. I am simply opportunistic in my approach and take the picture if I like it visually, almost a spur-of-the-moment.
