HONOLULU Magazine Photo Contest Winners

See the winners of HONOLULU Magazine's eighth annual photo contest.

When judging our Annual Photo Contest, the entries are always kept anonymous, to keep things fair. So it was a surprise, after picking our favorite shot, to learn the name of this year’s grand prize winner: Philippe Gross, the same photographer who won last year with a black-and-white shot of swimmers in a oceanside pool. For this year’s “Honolulu After Dark” theme, he submitted something a bit more oblique—the reflected image of his girlfriend in the Admiral Thomas building. “I didn’t plan it,” he says. “I’m always looking around my surroundings for photo opportunities, and I stepped out of the elevator and saw these reflections, and I knew.” Gross says that, as a psychologist, he’s interested in the psychological aspect of photography, and in finding multiple layers of meaning in an image. “Most of the time, a photo just shows what’s in front of you,” he says. “It’s harder to suggest something more complex.”

The first place winner receives $250, and the winning photo will be published in the the January 2013 issue of HONOLULU Magazine.
