BAGDAD PHOTO SHOWA... (Below threshold)


Award: Blue Ribbon

Title: Hand of Peace

Photographer: Abdul-Shahid

Commentary: The hand, having the inked stains of the new democracy, was carefully held-up to the flag. Notice the Artist has positioned the peace sign such that it makes the five pointed star into a six pointed star. As the hand is certain to move, the five pointed star will remain intact: thus, the six pointed star is both transient and metaphorical. The photographer clearly is stating that through peace, the five and six pointed star can coexist. As such this photo is the ultimate symbol of the hope embodied in youth: a young democracies hope of both a political and spiritual future.
