Posted by Darlene Bouchard — 25 Jan 2011

The Focus Project Announces its Grand Prize Photographer for its LOVE edition!

Earlier this month, we shared with you the People's Choice Award Winner for the LOVE edition of The Focus Project, a collective narrative of the world's most compelling photographs reflecting themes that are most important in our lives.

The Focus Project now announces the Grand Prize winner - congratulations to Sig Marlon from Oslo, Norway! The images he submitted are photograms created from true-to-size film and prints that capture both intimacy and separation between lovers. Mr. Marlon says, "I wanted to photograph the closeness between me and my girlfriend, and how a loving couple [consists] of two separate individuals who at the same time keep on crossing into [each others'] personal space, [forming] a working unity."
