INSOMNIA :: Honorary Mention by Oskar Alvarado
“It’s always good to see conceptual responses to a topic and this image, from a series exploring insomnia, is a great example. Capturing both the weightlessness of a dream state and the tedium and claustrophobia of sleeplessness (with the lump in the sheets perhaps being the body of a peacefully sleeping lover) there’s something beguiling about this scene – something ethereal and in tune with the feelings it sets out to describe. Oskar’s control of lighting is sumptuous, and the decision to stage it in what feels like a gallery setting is an intriguing one that further plays with ideas of perception.” – Life Framer
