The APME has honored this photograph as National Member Photo of the Month for September 2018.
Thanks to MetroWest Daily News staff John Walker, Art Illman, Ann Ringwood and Ruby Wallaufor judging.
Here is what the judgeshad to say about the winning image:
“We loved Andrew Carter's photograph of the tender moment between Robert Simmons Jr. and his kitten "Survivor". The look of despair in Simmons' posture paired with the quiet perseverance of the rain soaked kitten creates a powerful moment. The red color of the jacket nicely contrasts with a flooded desaturated background. This image of a man saving his kitten will surely become an iconic image of Hurricane Florence.”
