Winner: Liz from the Bronx, New York, U.S
Why we chose this picture?
At first glance the viewer’s eye lingers on the woman in blue. Her gaze is turned toward an object outside the frame, and her blood-red lipstick is a nice contrast to the blue dress.
She is classic elegance and wears a hat that is undoubtedly meant to declare: I am here, deal with it!
But a second look reveals its reflection on top of a window with interesting geometric shapes.
Beside her sits a man wearing a straw hat and a green striped jacket. To his right is probably another woman, with hair trimmed with yellow chrysanthemum.
This is a photograph that reveals a bit and conceals a lot more. A wonderful portrait of a mysterious woman in blue.
So here are some answers, by the winner himself:
I am a photographer from the Bronx who loves photographing street art and people who are interesting when it comes to fashion. New York always has interesting people and interesting things to photograph. You never seem to get tired of this amazing city which we call the city that never sleeps. I’ve been photographing for about 13 years which I enjoy doing and always camera ready to capture that perfect shot. I am truly Thankful. Liz
This photo you selected was taken on Easter Sunday at the Easter Day Parade on fifth Ave, New York City I was so excited to go to the parade because you never know what will capture your eyes. I’ve always been infatuated with the 60’s fashion and I came across this beautiful lady standing near a mirror with a beautiful hat and stunning outfit which also had a lovely mirror image reflection. Right then I knew I had to capture this moment.
