7th Annual ENVS Undergraduate Photography Contest (2017-2018)
Congratulations to the winners of our 7th Annual Environmental Photography Contest
1st Place: Marissa Donohue
Location: Chicago, Illinois
Wildflowers stretch higher than skyscrapers in this distorted perspective of Chicago, Illinois.
This urban environment shows the power of green spaces for pollinators, as three bees
(who are proportionally the size of airplanes!) land on white coneflowers.
2nd Place: Gabriel Emunah
Location: Mt. Tamalpais, Marin County, CA
This photo captures a lone, solemn tree standing above a bed of clouds on a golden hill;
a winding road splits the dying grass. It was taken on Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, CA.
3rd Place: Rayleigh Parker
Location: 574 Boston Ave., Medford, MA
These pictures were all produced by a program I wrote to "smush" the frames of a
video together to produce what I like to call motion paintings. This process captures
movement in a way that a photograph can't and projects it onto a still surface.
The final product serves as a reminder of the beauty you can find in the natural world –
even in the most mundane places – if you just stop to watch. This trio of pigeons was
filmed doing laps from the fourth floor of 574 Boston Ave., at dusk.
This year we received 72 entries from 24 contestants.
