Gary Woods was selected by one of the Source Judges, Dagmar Seeland, the UK Picture Editor at Stern.
“Gender issues were the subject of a number of works. Some projects were executed with great sensitivity and clear personal involvement, but none managed to inject humour into the debate as well as ‘The Little Merman’ by Gary Woods. This reinterpretation of Anderson’s tale is told in dreamlike images with a nod to Tim Walker. A story for our time, convincingly narrated and tapping directly into topical social issues still capable of raising eyebrows, such as gay marriage.”
