1st Place - Outstanding Achievement
From the series "Masks" Title: "Mother Earth", Digital capture, 35 mm
I named my new series of portraits 'Masks'. It speaks about my adapting to a new tropical environment, surrounds, and complex lifestyle. Keeping with the theme of nature and how our environment teaches us valuable lessons about the earth and regeneration, these masks are made of dry leaves from our local, tropical trees.
These images r not photoshopped. The masks are crested with dry leaves of tropical plants. Some were seen by hand.
