17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Child of the Corn, 2019

My son was playing in a cornfield in Burlington County, NJ. As he was peaking through the leaves, I captured this image. Through the vivid colors, and slight reflection of sunlight on the lens, we see a blue color near his eyes. The photo is haunting and playful. It both hides and reveals.
