Icemen by Cordelia Bailey
Icemen was photographed in Indonesia, where men wear hoods and masks to protect them from frostbite as they load ice blocks into fishing boats. This image won Best In Show at the 2014 Members' Exhibition of the Texas Visual Arts Association. The juror was Liliana Bloch, gallery owner. Icemen also was selected by a panel of three judges (John Guider, Nathalie Daoust, and Laura El-Tantawy) as winners in the Paducah Photo 2013 Contest. There were 550 entries from around the world, from which only 74 were selected. The exhibit was at the Yeiser Art Center in the summer of 2013. Bailey used this image as a centerpiece in a scene in her movie, Revenge In Kind.
