"Firstly, I would like to congratulate all the other winners. To win any photography award these days is a huge achievement, but to win in the Nikon Awards is very special. The standard of winning work is always incredibly high so it is a huge honour for me to have my work selected."
I had wanted for sometime to find ways to better understand my Gotlandic in laws and I found that the iPhone was the ideal tool to shoot this project. Far less intrusive than a DSLR, I was able to capture very unguarded moments. Using the Hipstamatic App took away the immediate control that one may have with a DSLR and gave me back some of the spontaneity and "luck" that I had back in my days of shooting film.
