One of my photos made the top 10 cut in a contest over at Imagekind with the theme of unity. Now it’s open to voters, and anyone can vote – not just Imagekind members. So if you think my photo represents unity the best, please feel free to vote for it.
How I believe it fits the theme: Visually, this photo shows four boys unified by their focus on a single book. As well, mosaics are made of disparate fragments unified by art. The photo was made in the courtyard of the Gugu S’thebe Arts and Culture Centre in South Africa, 13 years after the end of apartheid. These boys are younger than the country’s new democracy, the product of years of united, hard work.
And while I’m on the subject, Imagekind just announced a 25% discount on all framing until 10 pm (Pacific time) on August 18, 2008. To take advantage, just enter the promo code PLUNGE25 when you check out.
