Top Submission Award in Culture Theme - Andrew Suryono

Top Submission Award in Culture Theme

One of my photograph, "Selfie Without a Mask," won the Top Photo submission in Sony Southeast Asia's monthly photo contest.

I took this photograph during the annual East Java mask festival in my hometown, Surabaya. I noticed this one girl took off her mask to take a selfie of her. I immediately took a shot of her.

What made me take the shot was the blend of the two culture in the photo: the old and the new. The old culture is the mask festival and the new one is the selfie. It's interesting and fun to see the interplay of both culture in the photograph. Below is the "Selfie Without a Mask" photograph.
