2018 NYC Photo Walk Winning Photograph

"Project Ripple (2/10)"
by Lucienne Nghiem

“Project Ripple (2/10) was to showcase the creativity of beautiful individuals on the streets of New York. Taken during the Washington Square Park Photo Walk, I asked strangers if they would be okay with me taking their photograph. With working with people I have never met, those who have never before been given the opportunity to model, and folks based from all around the world, we put our creative minds together in order to create stunning images.

The series title, Ripple, symbolizes the ripple effect that creativity has on individuals. When one starts it, like a droplet falling into the great abyss, the possibilities are absolutely and truly endless. The All American Film Festival opened me up to those endless possibilities and put a ripple in my eyes which is why the title means so much to me.”
