Telling a story, by removing its subject

09 Nov

The world’s biggest photography competition on sustainability, by Swiss bank Pictet et Cie, awarded the first prize to a photographer from Canada, Benoit Aquin. The winning entry had no “water” in it.

Take a look at the other entries, too.

As a photographer, I am always intrigued in how we could tell a story, by reducing the “subject” to a form of minimalism. It’s too easy to describe your trip to Rome with pictures of the Colosseum, or a birthday party with the kid-blowing-candles shot.
