Brief Bio: Michael Hirst has been an award winning professional photographer for over 25 years. Michael hopes to create images that evoke the viewers feelings, their intellect, and an understanding of the subject.

Review: Michael Hirst's poignant image of a child with Leukaemia sets the mind in motion about our attitudes towards touching the sick. Perhaps the child's hand reaches out to touch, or perhaps it gestures a signal to stop. The angle of the hand might suggest a blessing from some holy, exuberant person. As you return to view this image it becomes ever more personal, moving, and a testament to the power of the human spirit.

Review:
Taking the icon of a postcard, Enrico has produced a thought provoking movie. A postcard seeks to capture the essence of a place in a single snap. In Greetings from Naples, the moment of a snap is stretched as we remotely 'touch' the screen with our mouse. The roughly rendered hand remains removed, detached from its desire. Like the memory of a place, the postcard repeats obsessively the moments of our passion and experience.
