2022 Finalists

Sonia PAYES

Statement:
Wherever Payes points her lens we see mysteries unveiled as though she has some strange, potent third eye. We see forces unleashed and then abated. The romantic and the cynic clash like spring water meeting magma as nature unleashes her fury culminating in her true magnificence; minerals, glass and ash come together. The shadowy steam creates a sense of the otherworldly. This is our planet in conflict with itself, dragging us into new directions. – Dr. Ashley Crawford
