The reason I like photo competitions is because of the intellectual and artistic challenge they provide. Preparing to submit 3 images to a competition on time.
Got me thinking on what times means and how to depict it visually. And it is not just about the wrinkles, although I think they are beautiful. It is about the softness of the wrinkles on her face as opposed to the harsh scratches the Auschwitz barbed wire left in her soul.
Do I want this image to be selected in the juried competition? Yes. But the real win for me was the process of creating it.
This is my mother in law.
I named this image - 'Her memories'.
