First Place - Black and White


This close-up of a corner in a house that Liza Pulgini used to live in is part of a series that she completed a few years ago titled "Trigger Point." She called the series "a personal history of objects that evoked feelings or memories." A 2001 fine arts graduate of Wayne State University, the 24-year-old currently works in the design field and does occasional freelance design and photography. Pulgini has been involved in photography since high school and shot this photo with a Canon A1 from the 1980s. It was printed on fiber, which gives the photo its interesting texture.
