After my submission to the 2015 emerging talent award, I received my review which recommended that I look at PHOTO LUCIDA, which I have done, and am on their email list. At the moment they are running a selfie contest. I turned 50 in Jan 2016 and my step-mother made a wonderful photographic card showing me from a baby to present time, including a photo that she dubbed the first ever selfie. I took this photo when I was 10, significant in my artwork too, because it was taken shortly after my mother died. My mothers death is a theme which I have been working with regarding my daughters sharing a history through the common link of their red hair. Anyway, the photographs had to be taken on a mobile phone, which I admit to not being very savvy with, I have an old nokia. I endeavoured to use it to enter the comp and this was the result.
