***Note from Kathryn Brolin on her selection process:
"The images I chose, to me, tell a deeper story than what’s there. To me, there is a difference between an image that catches your eye because it is a beautifully composed picture, and one that manages to draw you in and make you ask deeper questions about why the picture was worthy of being taken in the first place. What are the subjects doing? Why are they doing it? Where is his or her mother? Why is he or she crying? Why did the photographer choose to leave the subject out of the frame and focus on the subject’s shadow? What is the angle telling you? What is the negative space telling you? What was the photographer trying to say by using a longer shutter speed? Where in the world did this happen and is it still occurring? All of these questions I found myself asking upon reviewing some of these images. Ultimately for me it is about the exploration and image causes in me that brings me back to the medium of photography again and again. I’m honored to be judging beautiful images such as these and find myself feeling inspired to go out and shoot today based on the feelings I am having upon reviewing this collection. Isn’t that what’s it all about?" Kathryn Brolin
