Landon & Joey

Landon and Joey’ recently won Justin McManus the 2019 Nikon-Walkley Portrait Prize. The judges praised its tenderness and fragility. McManus wanted to illustrate the ongoing grief of the people and communities affected by losing loved ones to death in custody, and he certainly achieved it with the help of one main light on the face, and a key light placed behind the subject to darken the background so the viewer is drawn to the subject’s face.
