Yesterday I received details of the forthcoming SWPA 2009 tour dates, so I thought I’d share them for anyone who wishes to take a look at the exhibition. Venues include Aperture Gallery, Edward Day Gallery, Galerie Esther Woerdehoff, Pavilion and the Ardel Gallery of Modern Art.
I’ve been eagerly awaiting my copy of the Sony World Photography Awards Book for weeks now and I’m pleased to say that it finally arrived today. The winning images in the book were selected by a jury comprising of world-class photographers, curators and agents. The 2009 edition focuses upon the environment through the lenses of Bruce Davidson, Stuart Franklin, Cédric Delsaux and Brent Stirton. The book features all the winners, with comments from the jury members, and features a retrospective dedicated to Marc Riboud, recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award.
In July, I submitted a series of photographs into this years CIWEM Environmental Photographer of The Year Competition.
This international photography competition seeks to “honour photographers who use their ability to raise awareness of environmental and social issues”.
Today I was contacted by the judges who said that my submission had been successful and that they would like to include my photograph Aloha From Blackpool in the exhibition, which is great news.
