Judges Comments

  • I understand. At least I think so. After all, I’ve only been in this father’s place once, and God willing, once more, many years from now. But such is the power of an image to transport any soul to the presence of a prescient moment as this - to experience that which we employ as our own and all that we might possess one day. Damn. I love photography.
