3RD PLACE - PHOTO, Fine Art, 2019
Photo © Hilda Champion
No, it is not a charcoal drawing.
The photographer created this image by taking 70 exposures as she walked a full circle around the tree. She then layered all the frames, one on top of the other, with varying degrees of opacity.
As a result, the darker parts of the image represent a high number of pixels - pixels recurring in numerous layers -, whereas the lighter parts of the image represent pixels only occurring in a few frames. The accumulation of pixels thereby becomes a true two-dimensional representation of the three-dimensional oak.
