Runner-up Life Framer | Emotions of Life

Proud to be featured on Life Framer in their theme, Emotions Of Life. I was chosen as "runner up" by judge Chloe Aftel who noted, "This picture was just so unexpected, her face in the midst of the image, I couldn't tell if it was meant to be bizarre or not, just I liked the feeling it gave."

Chloe Aftel is an editorial and portrait photographer with a keen sense for style and fashion. Her poetic, lifestyle minded and narrative images are full of life and have a sense of freedom. She has won a bunch of award including American Photo, PDN 30, International Photography Awards.

The photo will be exhibited at a modern gallery in London at the end of 2013.
