photobooth contest – category #3 winner

September 26, 2010

Here’s a re-cap:

  • Category #3: Best “Wait” – Give us a glimpse of your own 3 minutes!
  • Judge: Matt Charnock, a misplaced Englishman in the Danish countryside and intensely creative (if only sometimes slightly inappropriate) photographer/lomographer
    Prize: a split cam and film (courtesy of and a COVETED INVITATION to JOIN the Art of Waiting as a contributor for the remainder of 2010)

Matt says,

Three Minutes to Heaven

“Hello Canada this is Denmark calling, thank you for a really wonderful evening, the votes have been counted and I can reveal who our winners are (if you have never seen the eurovision song contest then all that is lost on you!) OK, so, photography is ultimately all about story telling, you have only a one image to tell a story or get a message across. In this case 4 images but the principle is the same. What is important? What do you want the audience to know? The artist has in their head the story, but what 4 images will convey that story, what 4 semiotics will demonstrate it effectively? This was the criteria I had in my head when judging.”
“The simple nature of boiling an egg really appealed to my sense of simplicity and I liked the yellow background drawing reference to the yolk as well”

Matt’s pick is Ruthie Baudoin of Claremont, CA, and her “Three Minutes to Heaven” entry. Her photostrip was submitted with this Haiku:
