The ModFab Gallery: Beyond Monochrome

This week's contestants, last week's winner, and more after the jump:

Featured PhotoBlog of the Week:
Beyond Monochrome / "Aunt Bernice"

While we know that every photoblogger in the world can take pictures of a bored girlfriend or odd homeless person, it's extremely rare to find a truly talented portraitist. Beyond Monochrome is the gold standard, in my opinion; Austin-based photographer Walker Pickering enlivens his subjects through a careful observation of behavior, propelling a simple portrait into something approaching a visual short story or dramatic playlet. His series featuring Joe, a close friend with Down's Syndrome, is a perfect example of image-based storytelling. If photography is about capturing our world under a magnifying lens, Beyond Monochrome is its most elegant execution: the nuance of living a day, a moment, or a lifetime.

And now, viewers...time for you to pick the Best In Show!
