Juror's Choice: "Balance" by Denise Trotier Johnson
of Williston, VT, USA

As the world becomes more paranoid about being photographed, especially "on the street" where there isn't a chance to ask for permission first, the journalistic or documentary photographer still yearning to make candid images on the streets must be more creative, patient and sometimes deceptive.

The Darkroom Gallery Difference

This contest asked photographers to submit images that they feel capture the essence of candid street moments, with a special emphasis on images that tell a story, capture a unique moment or transcend all definitions by it's magical quality.

Juror's Statement:
The spirit of street photography is one of surprise, energy, mystery, irony, life! The entries in this contest represented all those qualities and more. I chose a winner based on a combination of these elements. While there were also entries that were quite strong, in my mind they strayed from the focus of this particular contest.

Juror: Ed Kashi

Ed Kashi is dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. Kashi’s complex imagery has been recognized for its compelling rendering of the human condition. “I take on issues that stir my passions about the state of humanity and our world, and I deeply believe in the power of still images to change people’s minds. I’m driven by this fact; that the work of photojournalists and documentary photographers can have a positive impact on the world. The access people give to their lives is precious as well as imperative for this important work to get done. Their openness brings with it a tremendous sense of responsibility to tell the truth but to also honor their stories.”
 
Kashi’s images have been published and exhibited worldwide. Along with numerous awards, including honors from Pictures of the Year International, World Press Foundation, Communication Arts and American Photography, Kashi’s editorial assignments and personal projects have generated six books.
