Lindsey Bergstrom Photography

Oh my goodness, was this a tough one. I nearly had to go the route of a three way tie. There were three that kept me coming back…… But then…
Lindsey Bergstrom and the image of her daughter’s eyes framed in shadow and light, looking up:
“When a portrait really works, it is as if a spotlight is upon the subject. Time stops and stretches on. Portraits can be the forever inside of us. The way we look from the inside out. The way we are known and seen. When I saw this image, I took a deep breath and felt like everything made sense. It stands on its own, a complete sentence. I feel as if Lindsey’s daughter is looking up at hope. Emotionally, it makes sense, and to me, and transcends any technical strengths…which are many. Visually, this is lush and rich and suggestive, like a poem with light. Simple, and everything but. A careful act of love made into art.”
thanks for including me .
