The image is by Jonathan Thorpe. I love Jonathan's approach to photography, especially his "special projects". The behind the scenes video about this image and links to Jonathan's work is in a blog post I shared last May. The short version of the story on this image, "Forever Alone," is that Cupid worked all day, but didn't save any arrows for himself.
Even better, if you'd like to meet Jonathan in person and have a cup of coffee with him at WPPI, check out the schedule in the Tamron booth, 441. He'll be in the Tamron Cafe and it's the perfect time to get to know Jonathan and add an incredibly talented artist to your network.
Meanwhile, wishing everybody a fun and happy Valentine's Day!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
