Clyde & Mary by Jason McNamara
Winner of the $25,000 2018 Stanthorpe Art Prize Award – First Prize.
The photograph features an elderly Ipswich couple, Clyde and Mary Towler, who are often seen walking the streets of Ipswich hand in hand. In this piece they were photographed in their home in Woodend, Ipswich. When asked why he thought his image resonated with so many people, Jason said the emotions brought out by viewing it reminded people of their own grandparents & relations. Jason also spoke of the vibrant arts scene in the Ipswich region.
