About Andre Thurairatnam:

My name is Andre Thurairatnam, and I’m a third year student in the journalism specialist program with the University of Toronto and Centennial College. In addition to my journalism specialist, I am also completing a double minor in English literature and theatre/performing arts.

The pictures I have submitted for this year’s photo show were selected from a larger array of photos which shared the same ongoing motif (the rose), and identical photo editing techniques. I chose to make all the colours duller – almost to a point where it would be black and white. The only exception was with the colour red. The red was to remain strong throughout all my shots in order to truly have the viewer truly experience the immense healing power of a single rose.
