Preston Gannaway is an award winning photojournalist, who works for the Concord Monitor, in New Hampshire. I came across her work, after reading a recent post on one of my favourite sites - http://theonlinephotographer.com/. Prestons work is beautiful, challenging, insightful and inspiring. She tells stories with her images, that hold you and make you want to see more.

A lot of her images have a peek-a-boo quality without the feeling of being voyeuristic. Many of her images use off centre compositions which are framed in unusual ways by the objects and environments in which they are shot. Her Photo-essay "Remember Me" was the first to draw my attention because of the Pulitzer Prize it won, however the rest are equally of note. Visit her personal site at prestongannaway.com it'll be well worth your time.
