"It is such an honor to be selected among some of the best photographers across the globe. The cool thing about this is that The Libertine for Fulton Beer poster’s still aspect was strong enough to be a Nominee. This still is just one aspect of the Living Art process I've been working on for years. The still being recognized as the beginning of a Living Art Poster, the viewer looks at the still photo and then it starts to move, it comes to life. The Brewery used the still photo for print ads as well as on it's website that showcases the living poster. So my process not only allows for print but for use in digital media as well,” said Robb Long
