Judges Comments

  • This image beautifully reflects the passage of time and a turning of the page in the chapter of life. The subdued lighting in the room is like a candle in the apex of extinguishment. The elderly woman at right symbolically represents that passage (although I am in no way suggesting that she is extinguishing.) As the couple exits one room they enter a far greater "room" outside, with community, friends and family that marks their path together as one.
