The MPA Weekly Showcase for April 22-29

Welcome to the Mobile Photo Awards Weekly Showcase for April 22-29.

This week’s selection features tremendous entries from MPA stalwarts Karen Divine, Robert-Paul Jansen and Souichi Furusho as well as top shelf work from MPA newcomers Andrew Chapman, Andrew Proudlove and the always excellent Bryan Pahia. The entries continue to provoke and force us to stop and look: the sensual and timeless feeling captured by Jeanette Serrat’s Réflectivité caught our eye immediately as did the gripping detail of Michael Hill’s Contemplation. Who wouldn’t look twice at the odd little building and brilliant color captured in Shel Serkin’s 24 Hours Video? The composition of the suitably titled Alienation by Alon Goldsmith is really special. And so many more!

It was a wonderful week of entries, really hard for us to choose. If we haven’t yet featured one of your pieces please keep submitting, we are always on the look-out for new work. We hope you enjoy this week’s showcase.

Cindy Patrick – a Personal Street Photography

Can You Play Me A Memory? crop

Here at the Mobile Photo Awards we are big fans of photographer and artist Cindy Patrick. Her style is readily identifiable, unique – her work speaks with a clear voice. We invited her to submit a thematic photo essay and she chose to focus on her recent street photography. This work is different from what we might typically associate with street photography: it’s painterly, colorful, vibrant. It’s not less or more authentic, just different. And beautiful! Please enjoy Boulevard of Chroma Dreams by Cindy Patrick.

“With my street photographs, I’m interested in taking candid pictures in public places and transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Unlike traditional street photography, I’m interested in creating images that will surprise the viewer, primarily through the use of bold color. I’m less concerned about showing what something or someone looks like than I am with showing how I feel about my subjects.”
