  • I love Michelle Ferrera's work. It's such an intimate view. Makes me wonder Why? and the pencil on wood is pure genius!

    Congrats to all, but especially to Michelle. Her piece touched me.
  • These are all so amazing!! Great job everyone!!
  • Wow, such powerful images. Keep em coming!!
  • The second one feels like a connection to a different kind of lifestyle and how things work in small places. (Don't know if I made my point :P )
  • I absolutely love the first photo. It really tugs at the heart strings, if I may be cliché. Mike made it personal, and that's what stands out for me.
