TheFWA, or Favorite Website Awards, began shortly into the new millennia and ever since then, the website has been showcasing the best of The Web on a daily basis. The site is the highest ranking website award program on the interweb, and back in 2009 they launched a new website – FWAPhoto – where each day vistors get a fresh dose of photography from a selected picture maker.
So why am I talking about TheFWA and their offspring FWAPhoto? Well, while checking out the overview of selected images for this month, I noticed a familiar frame and was pleased to find work from Jean Malek as the Photo of the Day for August 18th!
The image is from Jean’s series, The Secretary, shot as a personal creative but later published by SNAP!, a free art, fashion, and culture magazine available quarterly here in Canada. A quick word from Malek before we get into the good stuff.
The Secretary marked the beginning of my exploration of cinematic framing within photography. My inspiration for the creative series came from the Steven Shainberg film of the same name, and a huge thanks goes out to Shayl Prisk at SNAP! for including this work in their pages. Hope you enjoy!
