Through orchestrated narratives, Nadine Rovner creates lush cinematic scenes with heightened tension, anxiety, anticipation, longing and desire. Says Rovner, “There is something idyllic yet broken, thrilling yet vulnerable, beneath the veneer of the characters that speak to the current complexity of a society filled with palpable tension and fraught with resistance.”

Having moved from America’s flatlands to the mountainous West, Jantzen says she approached this series as both a window through which she could observe her new surrounds, and as a mirror to reflect her inner state of being. She says, “I use layering and blending modes to merge the observed environment with my internal intuition.”

First Place Composite Category

In this series, Isak envisions a dream world where solitude is more than being alone—it’s a world of soul searching and dream interpretation inspired by the photographer’s years suffering from depression. “The objective of the series is to let the audience envision themselves as the subject, alone in this serene blue world,” says Isak. He hopes the work will shine light on depression and mental health, “a subject that is still very hidden in our society.”
