CharPo-Canada's Photo of the Year, 2012

Sometimes a theatre photo is just right, as is this one from Bruce Monk. It is for MTC's Next to Normal with Jonathan Cullen and Steffi DiDomenicantonio and it captures perfectly that moment - that exquisite moment - before the kiss. Moreover, the colours are perfect (the subdued palette with the very subtle flash of red in the running shoes), the lighting frames (without being "theatrical"). It is the essence not only of theatre promotional photography but of the art itself. [Each of our principal sites - CharPo-Montreal and CharPo-Toronto - will be presenting their photo of the year today. Tomorrow we will be presenting THE photo of the year for all sites.]
