This year, we introduced a new Series category into our annual The World We Live In photo contest, and we loved how you embraced it. We featured a selection of images from each winning series in the April/May issue on newsstands now. And, as promised, here is the 1st-prize series from The World We Live In VII. Links to the other winning series are at the end of the post.
Alexandre Robert…the Great!
by Jean-Pierre Robert
1st prize, Series category, The World We Live In VII
“Why did a camera suddenly appear in my hand when you were 18 years old? Perhaps because it’s a time in life with many changes, a different experience for each person. I wanted everyone to see you—not only from the outside but also from the inside with your wonderful personality. You are good; you are patient, always joyful with playful eyes. I think you are the best! I wanted to share your everyday world that’s little different from others. The path you have to follow is a little like an obstacle course, and, despite that, you’re able to accomplish great things! You shine wherever you are, and you bring a sparkle to the eyes of each person you encounter. Thank you for being in our lives. You’ve made us better people.
—Papa who loves you!”
