This years departmental award for photography goes to….Lee Morley! Lee created this image with a philosophical context in mind: the moment we all have to confront at the end of life. In the photographer’s own words:
It is a composite image that I created during my second term project and represents a place we come to at the end of our journey through life, where people find themselves ready for death and waiting to move on. The bright light is the unknown future and when the time comes it is a journey we must make alone. I used a solitary figure that waits to take his final journey onwards and I called the image ‘The Last Stop’.
Congratulations to Lee for winning this year’s price with this very suggestive image.
