Open Competition
First Prize Winner

In her series Bare Handed Lynton aims to depict the delicate balance between dominance and surrender.

"While making my photographs, I discovered that these individuals have a spiritual commitment to their work that goes beyond the rational and points to the power of faith." Lynton seeks to celebrate that spiritual conviction and her subjects' resistance to the trend towards mechanisation. She attempts to capture the many mythical and religious references occurring naturally and spontaneously in these communities, "with just a tilt of her head, the teenage girl in Sienna, Turkey Madonna, is transformed into a rendition of the Virgin Mary."
