People's Choice Winner

MCMA extends huge congratulations to Noah James Saunders (Athens, GA) for winning the People’s Choice Award for 2023’s Metro Montage! “Growing up queer in Cobb County cultivated a belief in me that I am too different and broken to be understood or loved. Creating sensitive portraiture required me to look empathically beyond my pain and discover where another’s emotional universe intersects my own. My pain became a tool, driving me to render my work with deeper humanity.”
