Sandy Nicholson has an interesting photo project. She takes photos of the first losers, otherwise known as second place. It is a place I know well. Well, actually, I don’t even know second place all that well. Like eighth or ninth maybe.
“2nd: The Face Of Defeat is a collection of photos by Sandy Nicholson of those who came in second place or, if you prefer, lost first. Either way, it makes for a complex set of portraits featuring the upset, the stoic, the bloody, and the shocked accompanied by their own words, all captured moments after their loss,” she writes.
