Reverie '09 - Thunderdome!

These are shots from various stages of the Instructors' Thunderdome competition on the last day of the Reverie workshop in Dallas. The instructors are given a topic at the start of an hour and then let loose to complete an image from scratch, to be judged by the entire workshop.

The topic given was to show hope even in the oppressive situation in the Congo where the population struggles with abuses associated with mining ores used in our everyday technology like cell phones and laptops. The finished images will be utilized by HOPE.

Get involved. The Devil's Candy Store is working on ways to help right now.

Kevin Llewelyn's image is on the right.
