Awards

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Earlier this year – during my silent period – I was notified that several of my images have been recognized by major international photography competitions. The first was a commendation by the Sony World Photography Organisation (British spelling). Out of 51,878 submissions the top 50 are recognized in each category. My photograph of Cremations Along the Ganges received this honor.

The second competition is Px3, Prix de la Photographie Paris. That competition received thousands of entries from 85 countries. I submitted a series of photos of Amsterdam that was selected for honorable mention. These images are a departure for me. They are composites of images of a place and symbols of the place. In this instance I combined an image of houses on a canal with an image of miniature delft-blue Dutch houses given away as liquor bottles by KLM Airlines. The images are then expressed in a range of colors. They are meant to be viewed together. The series is below.
