Gomma Grant 2019 Best Color Picture

"Beautiful Solitude" Traces of beauty exist everywhere around us. Sometimes we just need the time and space - physical and emotional - to be able to pause to experience them. This series asks the viewer to stop for a few minutes and soak in the details that can go unseen in everyday life. The location of each of the photographs could be anywhere. While they contain the traces of people that have come before, it is the absence of anyone recognisable in the images that allows us to contemplate and appreciate the concept of beautiful solitude.

These images were each photographed using film photography."
