You Guess It
Every other week we at LUCEO post archive photos as part of a fun photo challenge that involves you, dear photography lover. We post photos Monday through Thursday based on a secret theme provided by a photographer or blogger or anyone in the photo industry, then we wait for you to guess the theme and write it in the comments by Thursday. Friday, we will announce who correctly guessed first. If you play your cards right, there might just be a prize involved. (Keep in mind, not every photo has to blatantly follow that theme, but all the photo clues together will spell it out.)
This week’s theme picker is photographer Stephen Barrett. Though none of us have met Stephen in person (yet), we feel like he’s an old friend of ours. He always offers such insightful comments on our blogs and Facebook page and we’re huge fans of his sense of humor and support. He is a retired career professional based in Georgia with 40 years experience currently pursuing his photographic art, creating new imagery and re-imaging his extensive files. You can see his blog here.
Folks, really use your noggins, Stephen didn’t pick an easy theme for you.
*FRIDAY UPDATE*: You all never fail to amaze me. These themes are never easy to illustrate and are never easy to guess but someone always comes up with the secret theme. So, without further adieu, Stephen Barrett’s theme was “Paranoia” and Richard Beaven guessed it. Richard, email Kendrick (kendrickbrinsonATluceoimagesDOTcom) and tell her you want a prize!

A detail of prints installed on behalf of @harmreductioncoalition at the 58th Commission on Narcotic Drugs in #Vienna, #Austria. The work draws from 400 portraits paired with text written by each subject advocating for a more human drug policy that includes harm reduction among its tenets. #HarmReduction, as a practice, is a relatively simple and pragmatic approach to drugs which focuses on the issue through the lens of public health rather than through the criminal justice system (which, globally, can carry sentences up to and including life in prison and death.) Its adoption into formalized policy has been a steady and incremental journey that has spanned roughly three decades.
