Finalist Lange-Taylor Prize

I’m very excited that I am a finalist with “What Remains of the Day – Memories of World War II” in the prestigious Dorothea Lange – Paul Taylor Prize that the Center for Documentary Studies (CDS) at Duke University awards annually. Thanks to the selection committee for choosing my project. This year’s winner of the prize is Katherine Yungmee Kim.

I am also currently a finalist in the Critical Mass online portfolio review. My work and that of 199 other talented photographers is currently being reviewed by a group of 200 jurors; the ‘Top 50’ photographers will be announced in October. Thank you in advance for reviewing my work!
