As part of my assignment, I was asked to select one “personal favorite” portfolio, which I would be able to present in Lens Culture, as well. I chose these wonderfully rich and quirky portraits by Donna Pinckley of young kids at leisure. They seem absolutely real, alive, a bit quietly suspended in time, and surreal all at the same time. And I love the incidental objects that fill each of the surroundings.
You can see all of my final picks from the competition at The Center for Fine Art Photography site. They make up a surprisingly eclectic mix that I like quite a bit.
