Eighth Annual Focus on Nevada Photo Contest

Grand Prize

GRAND PRIZE Mike Cowan Semiprofessional “An exhausted foreman of a construction crew installing cement mortar lining inside a large underground water pipeline takes a smoke break. meanwhile, his crew resolves mechanical issues with the equipment in the extremely hot and humid pipe.”

Have we reached the new normal yet? Or is this just the newest new normal, with others to follow? Or, what if — oh, never mind. As Las Vegans, we know change is constant and unpredictable. So, instead, let’s dwell on these images, winners of our 2020 Focus on Nevada photo contest, and what they remind us of, which is that “normal” fluctuates, but many things endure. Beauty. The power of nature. The energy of cities. The mysteries of human nature. The magical interplay of light, subject, and a photographer’s inspired eye. Congratulations to these winners for providing bright visions in an uncertain time.
