Thank you to everyone who submitted work to our summer art project, “Love.” You are all inspiring and we hope to see more of your work in future projects here in the Nonsense Society. The two artists below will be approached for a featured interview on the site and will also hold a place of recognition in the site’s sidebar during the fall months. Congratulations!
People’s Choice: Jordy Rabinowitz, photographer (New York)
While everyone had overwhelming support through votes, social media shares, and hits to their posts, Jordy was the clear “people’s choice.” His romantic photograph inspired tons of votes from visitors and friends. We were very impressed with the support and enthusiasm Jordy got during the week of voting. He definitely deserves it and we can’t wait to learn more about his work. His profile on Flickr says he works as a lawyer! Perhaps photography is a long time hobby? It’s impressive either way and we’ll look forward to hearing more.
“Even in winter, even through coats and coverings, even with the wind blowing and the night descending, even with the noise of everyone else moving about, the tender touch of love comes through.” – Jordy Rabinowitz
Editor’s Pick: Jeffrey Philip Nelson, singer-songwriter (Los Angeles)
This was hard. I spent weeks going back and forth about my decision. In the end I had to choose Jeff Nelson’s beautiful song entitled, “Never Leave.” It’s honest and makes my heart ache. It’s also unique that Jeff chose to write about the fear of infidelity. It was a nice contrast to the messages from the other artists. I think it’s something we all fear. Jeff was brave to express that fear. This is something I hope to see in more artists, myself included. – Chris Collins (Editor in Chief)

“After watching a close friend go through the pain of infidelity, I wrote a love song to my wife of how crushed I would be if she left me.” – Jeffrey Philip Nelson
