PAUL NATKIN JUROR STATEMENT

Music photography has changed over the years. Musicians are much more protective of their image and restrictions apply at almost every touring rock show. Barriers have been set making it much more difficult to capture the “Decisive moment.” That being said, a great music photograph stands out by showing the viewer the personality of the subject. A moment captured by a photographer is a moment in time captured forever, document the history of an art form.
 
There were many great photographs in these submissions. Many people thought out of the box, and did not just “Take a picture of the guy”
 
They showed musicians and their environments in many unique ways. One of my favorites was a guy with a guitar case walking past a tree with leaves in full fall colors, walking past a one way sign in the opposite direction.
 
There were many still life photographs that spoke to me, such as a leather jacket hung over a Marshall Amp.
 
All in all, some great photographs, with some very unique perspectives.
 
Paul Natkin
