‘The photographer insists that he is “too lazy” to use lighting equipment and doesn’t see the point in a laborious set-up.

Winning entry above: 2016 Family of Man Photographer of the Year Award – IPA Award Philippines.  ‘The Family of Man competition is inspired by Edward Steichen, who in 1939, was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.  He asked 30 photographers – including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange – to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, marriage, and Death.’ http://www.photoawards.com/family-of-man/
