    Finalist Tyler Goldflower

    “The Kiss”
    The water offers us a dream-like version of reality, although rooted in the physical and real, the water removes the boundaries of gravity allowing bodies to flow freely in dream-like suspense. Sometimes from the corner of our eye just out of focus, we glimpse a more abstract version of reality. Buried beneath our conscious selves, just beneath the surface is the river of the unconscious, carrying our deepest inner workings and desires. These phantoms of the mind have long been the source of spirituality and religion. Down the ages, we have sought to understand these mysteries through stories, myths, and legends. From cave paintings of animistic deities to the myths of ancient Greece, we have sought to understand these universal and fundamental inner workings that make us human. Through play and intimacy, we come to further understand the fundamental human desire for connection that drives the way we navigate the world, that gives us magic and purpose for living. © Tyler Goldflower

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it. Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere. Understanding its people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This summer we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all its splendor and trigger our memories. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary… We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually – Let’s travel together!
