You showed us “Faces,” now let’s see some “Outside Art”

From Wayne Rackoff of West Ashley: This photo was taken at Mother Emanuel after the murders last summer.

We all have a face, but the emotions on our faces during times of great tragedy have the power to connect us all.

After the shooting last summer at Mother Emanuel AME Church, our city mourned.

We wept. We stood together. We will never forget.

Last week, we asked you to send us your photos on the theme of “Faces.”

While we enjoyed all of 34 entries we received, it was the photo taken by Wayne Rackoff of West Ashley outside the church. just three days after the shooting, that impressed us most.

Along with a strong composition and an intersting angle, it was the human emotion Rackoff captured on the faces of the two people outside the church that made an impact on us.

Thank you to all who submitted entries.

We’re looking for different forms of art seen outdoors, be it sculpture, headstones, graffiti, murals, street performers, you get the idea. Send us your best shot. Submit only one entry per photographer please.

- Send just one (1) photograph to by noon on Thursday, Feb. 25. Include your name, the town you live in and where the photo was taken. If you send us multiple photos we will select one randomly.

- We will allow photographs with reasonable watermarks to run in the gallery but for the winning photo that runs in the newspaper we must have a photo that does not have a watermark. If you want to send us one with the watermark (to run online) and one without (to possibly run in the newspaper) please feel free.

- The top pick each week will be featured in the Sunday Arts & Culture section and selected picks will appear on The Post and Courier Facebook page.
