Grand prize winner – Doug Henderson
Doug Henderson is a commercial photographer based in Tulsa, Okla. In his 31 years as a photographer, his work has been exhibited locally at the Philbrook Museum of Art and the Oklahoma State Capitol and internationally in Belgium and Romania. Henderson's photographs have also appeared in several well-known publications, including The New York Times, National Enquirer, National Examiner, Oklahoma Today, Tulsa World and others. Soon, his art will be featured in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
"I think people will be surprised at the level of detail in this design. You can read the serial numbers on the motor castings; every chip and every scratch. This image is made up of six overlapping photos that are combined into one super-high resolution composite image. This is the largest image I've had printed to date," Henderson said.
