    Tara Pixley, PhD. This series is such a vibrant, loving rendering of Coney Island imbued with even more meaning in our current COVID reality where a carefree summer like this might not be possible again for some time. Beautiful images, incredible eye for motion, connection and compelling moments. One of the best series in this contest, hands down.
