1st Place

Elizabeth Spear

Patagonia 2

Digital Photography

Visit Website

Elizabeth is a self-taught photographer residing in New York City. She has always been interested in photography and started out with concert photography. Nowadays, while she typically focuses in portraiture in urban areas, she also finds herself in exploring and hiking (sometimes begrudgingly) with her travel partner in very rural areas.

When approaching nature photography, Elizabeth is not interested in summits or completing a trail. She feels most inspired with colors and textures and smaller moments of awe that nature presents.

Adam Wilson

Fig Leaf

Inspired by artists as diverse in vision as Ansel Adams, Martin Parr and Eric Hosking, Adam has investigated the wonders of nature and landscape through digital photography since 2006. Projects have captured subjects varying from stone circles of coastal Connemara and vertical tree panoramas to lichen microworlds and fungus minutiae. The intricate symmetry of his recent ‘Arbographs’, ‘Floragraphs’, ‘Terrographs’ and ‘Nimbographs’ ’ is achieved through mirror imaging, Rhorschach test and kaleidoscope principles to explore how the brain interprets images, colour and patterns, identifying ‘intrinsic faces’ in interweaving leaves, branches, petals and light. Adam’s adoption of this technique resulted from the process of adaptation and re-evaluation following his diagnosis of young-onset Parkinson’s in 2017. Adam is fascinated by the way photography can capture the brief interaction between observer and natural subject – the fleeting moment so gracefully preserved by haiku, of which he is a keen practitioner, with work published in the UK and the US.

Chantal Bourque

Born in the province of Quebec in Canada, Chantal Bourque was amazed from childhood by the emotional power of images. Chantal pursued her passion for the arts with a Diploma of College Studies in Fine Arts, a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Communications, followed by an Attestation of Collegial Studies in Multimedia Programming. It is after reading a book by Peter Wohlleben that her approach is defined; trees would become the center of her creations.

She draws her inspiration from the authenticity of the forest. Soaking up the sounds, textures and smells, she lets herself be guided by the way light, colors and shapes interact in melody with nature. Combining a realistic style with her artistic vision, it is with humility that Chantal expresses in her paintings the emotional balance that the forest provides.

Her approach is studied, her brush strokes are precise and meticulous. This artist also advocates an application of the material allowing her to obtain relief and texture, particularly on the tree trunks she paints. In constant search of evolution of her artistic technique, Chantal now integrates real pieces of bark to her creations. These small pieces of bark are now the common thread in all her works.

Through her paintings, Chantal wishes to convey the feelings that she gets from trees: rootedness, strength, uniqueness, hope, impermanence, resilience and originality.
