"Untitled Portrait 2"
By Rebecca Newell
"Untitled Portrait 2," which received an honorable mention, is a photograph that illustrates Cartier Bresson's dictum of "the decisive moment." The tension of this particular moment is exaggerated by the tilted camera angle. The eye, lit by the glow of a lighter, focuses our attention. Clearly there's a story here, and the photograph makes us wonder what it is.
