Doug Grant's photo 'Private Lives' was chosen by Dave Pollock of Prism Imaging as Prism's Choice for best Colour photograph. 'This work is filled with details that remind us of the world we live in. Other elements of this work point to private experiences, as the name of the piece suggests. The photograph is nicely arranged. All elements draw the eye to the central figure. The juxtaposition of graffiti against the repressive brick wall is intriguing.'
