London, UK (14 January 2018) – Photographer Jason Matias of United States was Awarded Honorable Mention in Landscapes for the winning entries First Light, Iron, Moon Over Mt Baker, Skimming Through Time, & White Mountian at prestigious Monochrome Awards honouring Black & White Photography
The 2017 Monochrome Awards received 8942 submissions from 87 countries around the world.
Photography began as a means of solving the “no picture, no proof” argument when I used to do solo backcountry hiking in Alaska. I was stationed at Eielson AFB at the time. Since then it’s bloomed, wintered, and bloomed again. I now define my photography within two distinct veins: Comfortable Isolation and the Personification of Nature. In short, I search for scenes of quiet isolation where we can re-engage our ego and, in that discussion, enable personal growth. I am also in search of hints of Nature in her ethereal form. Whether it be the shape of a woman in a wave as in the piece “Her;” trees that look alive as in the piece, “Dance;” or a great bird riding the waves as in the piece, “Pacing the Sun.” Feel free to ask me to define either of these at length.
