Gilmar Smith’s winner: Joanna Koziara

Joanna stole my heart with her beautiful portraits of her daughter. Her gorgeous lighting technique, the concepts, wardrobe, use of color and every detail about these images were beautifully executed.
I think this is what the hunt is about. To use those words as an inspiration to create fabulous imagery. I can easily see each one of these pictures hung all around her house and even galleries. It’s such a beautiful series! I’m sure Joanna, her daughter and their whole family will treasure these images for years to come.
