I’m very pleased to announce that my “Neo-Burlesque” Book Proposal just won a first place People’s Choice Award in the 2010 PX3 Prix de la Photographie Paris in the book category. This is Narcissister!!! one of the most recent portraits from my project.
A quote from Narcissister!!!:
“I really love to confront issues through my work that are much broader than what I personally might have experienced. I bring aspects of myself, my history, my ethnic background and myself to the work. I try to portray different characters in the way an actor might. I really want to speak about universal issues for women and I feel the mask is a neutral face that enables me to be much more universal.”
I’m pleased to announce that I won an honorable mention in the 2010 Px3 Prix De La Photographie Paris for my Neo-Burlesque book proposal.
A series of spreads from my Neo-Burlesque book proposal took 3rd place in the Book category at this year’s xto Image Awards.
