Comment from Paul Del Rosario
“It was exciting to see that 6×6 on film is alive and happening. Participants worldwide using a wide range of cameras and film and embracing the Square image. Cool. I hope the contest sparked interest for people to experiment with the other aspect ratios (645, 6×7, 6×9) or to just pick up any film camera, take a walk, and enjoy an LCD-free photo experience.”
120 LOVE Prize Winner:
Congratulations, chuo104! Here’s comment from Paul Del Rosario.
“My first reaction when I saw this photo was ‘That looks fun!’ Fun to view, and the photographer must have had a fun time shooting it. I often see dreary photos of crowded train stations and drunk salarymen in Japan, but this photo obviously takes a different way to look at yet another train station photo. I thought the photographer was quite skilled in getting a shot like this on film, and the photo itself is just odd in a playful way. The commuters are in their own world reading books, checking their mobile phones, waiting, and other things that we normally see at the station. Unbeknownst to them, someone with a camera is setting the stage and composing a quirky story to spice up a regular workday.”
