Red for Heart Photography Competition 2010
Here are the well deserved winners, runners
up and highly commended images from our second annual Red for Heart
Service Tunnel by Gillian Hayes
"The service tunnel, an area mainly unseen and hidden in the
depths of a building, full of pipes, wires and gizmos endlessly and
faithfully chugging away to keep the building running smoothly
"This reminded me of the role of our heart, which also works
endlessly and faithfully away in our bodies without rest, to keep
everything in check."
The Stage by Matthew Town
"To me 'heart' is all about having the courage to face
anything. I have tried to represent it by showing where people
perform, having the courage to show people you can do it.
"Within my images I have added the factor of an audience
which tends to put you at your most vulnerable, but being able to
overcome fear we are able to achieve great things."
The Runners up
Runner up - Adult
Bangor Pier by Nick Board
"This is a photo of my niece and nephew Sophie and Thomas. I hope
it captures a little of the good health and sheer joie de vivre
enjoyed by the young, something all of us should, and could, carry
with us through life.
Runner up - Student
Moen Lanke by
"In this portrait of Moen Lanke, a sea nomad from Indonesia, the
faded red of his handmade goggles represents to me the fading hope
that he keeps in his heart as he watches his culture and traditions
disappearing around him."
