Contest Theme: Fire
Prize: Three rolls of film developed and scanned for free
From the Artist: "My mother always said that you’d get burned anytime you played with fire. During the first few months of quarantine, one of the few things that kept me creating was playing with fire, seeing how it lit up the house where i live that, even when it’s sunny, it’s still dark. Another thing that i played with was movement and thinking about combining movement and light is how this and many of the images i’ve created have been born."
What We Liked: We like how this photo captures a range of feelings within a single frame—traced by the candle’s flame. The background, captured in an unnatural shade of green, further emphasizes the surreal elements at play here.
