1st Place - Outstanding Achievement
Photographed in Venice Beach California
Biography: As a New York City based photographer, I've been pursuing my craft for the past two decades, after graduating from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara. I moved to New York City and then Europe to pursue a career in the fashion industry and was published in many international magazines. Then I made the transition to Fine Art and developed a propensity for Black & White imagery. I focus on the juxtaposing the perceptible beauty of the female form against our manufactured environment and my intent is to allow viewers to contemplate the relationship of man & his urban environment.
