and Matt Moyer
, National Geographic Photographers, intrigued me with their description of this assignment and I knew I wanted to participate. They wrote, "We live in a world in motion. Forever changing and growing, moving and blurring. Our job as still photographers - and your assignment - is to capture it. How do you show a world in motion? Of course, you think of bicycles blurring, people dancing, or birds in flight but also think of ripples on a lake, or wrinkles on skin. Star trails hint at the earth’s rotation as a lava flow builds a new world. Motion is progress and propulsion. Cultures and norms are forever in flux – advancing and contracting – they too are in motion."
It didn't take me long to identify 26 images that met the criteria for this assignment and then the hard work began; identifying the three I would submit. You'll find those submissions first in this gallery and I'll be adding others that didn't make my final cut so I hope you'll stop back.
