LensCulture Winner 2020. Selected by Charlotte Cotton
Very happy to be sharing that my work 'Rangi'has been selected as a finalist for lensCulture critics choice award 2020.
"Hailing from 20 countries across six continents, these 48 photographers are the first group to be recognized through our brand new initiative that aims to give more photographers direct visibility with influential international critics. For this new award, we invited 20 experts from around the world to review the submissions — asking each to select three personal favorites to win a Critic’s Choice award — and to explain what they particularly liked about each of their picks.
Photographers from over 150 countries took advantage of this opportunity to get their work seen by this large group of experts. And the results are — amazing!"
Thank you to Charlotte Cotton writer and curator for selecting my work.
