Highly Commended, DIVER Print Competition 2017 (Judges Vote)
British and Irish category
"This almost abstract image drew all three judges in for a long look to determine the subject matter. In that sense it immediately succeeded by engaging us very strongly. On closer look, we saw how very careful lighting had revealed the subtle contours of an almost ghostly face covered in fine strands of algae. And then we found snails, mussels and all sorts of fine colours and textures. It's a dream-like image that sets you thinking in so many different ways. Very creative work that drew high praise from all of us."
