Owen Yalandja 2009,
by Stephen Oxenbury.
I believe that this portrait should have been the winner, as it has strong contrast, colours and other features.
An image does not have to have the main object centred in the middle of the frame and this portrait displays that well.
Large space is used within the image which gives the image alot more thought to it, for e.g. giving the views the thought that there is something beyond the man and his area. This image displays an aboriginal man and his culture.
I quite enjoyed viewing this portrait and believed it was creative in its own sense.
