Curtin student wins big thanks to connection with nature

A MINDARIE photographer won a recent competition with a composition inspired by his connection to nature.

Benn Tudor-Roberts (20) called his entry to the June Canon Light Awards 156 (pictured) after counting how many leaves he had placed into the arrangement.

�I was definitely inspired by nature and my connection to it,� he said.

�I thought that a tree of life would be a suitable visual and the shapes of the leaves would work well for the high key brief.�

The Curtin University student won a Canon EOS 5D Mark III or $4000 online voucher, and is a finalist for the year-end round. The monthly award aims to push the skills of inexperienced photographers.
