Joey Lawrence’s, “Harmless Harvest: An intimate portrait of Thailand’s coconut farmers” is the photograph that stood out the most. The irony of this being the typically mundane black and white picture is that it feels a lot louder than any of the others.
The sharpness of the translucent white sunshine and glistening reflection of the river hold the authority of highlighting every minute detail in the photographs black areas. The entire balance is working really well because of that effect and in turn, makes for a really relaxing picture. It becomes a good shot to just pause and let your mind wander, as you scan through its softly toned landscape.
