“PX3 is Europe’s biggest and most prestigious photography competition” - CameraArts Magazine
I recently received some great news from Hossein Farmani, the founder of Prix de la Photographie Paris. I had submitted a series of five images from the Black Rock Desert during the cultural experiment Burning Man in Nevada, with high hopes for my unique collection of photographs. I was floored to discover that my series won a Gold Medal; first place in the Press (travel/tourism) professional category of the competition. The photographs will be published in the annual PX3 book, and are currently on display in the PX3 exhibition at Espace Dupon in Paris, France.
The series is displayed in a slideshow at the bottom of this post, please take a look! The photograph above is a recent self portrait that I took the day after receiving the good news.
A big thanks goes to all my friends, family, and supporters over the first three years of my career. This is a huge milestone for me, and I am very excited to have achieved this so early in my professional photographic journey- it couldn’t have happened without all of you. Thanks for taking the time to look at my photographs, your support has kept me on my feet, allowing me to keep my head in the clouds.
