Store Gallery for December 2021: Summer 2021 Film Photography Contest Winners

Project Statement

In a year of ups and downs, one thing has remained constant; the desire to create and express oneself. Through lockdown, through protest, people turned to film photography as a form of documentation, distraction, and escapism. Some of these feelings and motivations could be seen in this year's summer film contest. In Magnus Holmes portrait “Cole”, we see a young person in the solitude of their home, this brings to mind a relatable sense of isolation so many felt during the early months of 2020. Malcolm Lee’s “Rain Walks” reminds us of the importance of self reflection as we ripple and wave our way through life. “Cathedral Snow Park”, a landscape by Nicolas Vavuris, offers a peaceful, serene sense of calm. In contrast, Dan Williams’ “Old Glory” evokes feelings of patriotism and forces us to evaluate what exactly the American flag symbolizes. 


Many thanks to the artists who submitted their work to this year's show.
