Time Limit: Image must have been taken after June 21, 2021.
Hearing the word “abandoned,” we might think of a house, or a boat, an old factory or a truck sitting in a field behind a barn – something unwanted and left behind, left to fall into a state of disuse. But abandoned can also be a state of mind – abandoned hopes and dreams, forsaken, deserted. Left without needed protection, care, or support. Animals can be abandoned. So, unfortunately, can children. For this assignment, a successful image will express “abandoned”, literally, metaphorically or conceptually, and consider that your title may provide context for the viewer.
Judge is Don Rosenberger.
Don Rosenberger, Photographer Don describes himself as just a guy who loves to make images. His love of photography began when he was a teenager. Along with his passion for cars, Don would often be seen at the starting line photographing drag races on the weekends. After a while, the cost of photography grew to be too much and Don stopped taking pictures. Fortunately, the arrival of digital photography re-ignited his love for photography and it has been his driving passion ever since. It is the constant desire to improve his craft and elevate the quality of his work that keeps Don growing as an artist. In 2013, Don co-founded the very successful Road Runners Photography Tours. Leading photo tours domestically and internationally with RRPT was an incredible experience. In 2019, Don decided to leave RRPT to spend more time working on his art and building his own brand. He also runs the Fairfax (& DC Metro Area) Photography Meetup group where he organizes different photography opportunities where photographers of all skill levels can get together and explore new places, develop skills and meet other photographers.
