Always nice to see the effort (and expense! I think $275 total for this review) are amounting to something. Now we wait to see if I’m voted (by this list of 200 or so jurors/reviewers) in to the ‘Top 50’, or even the top two or three who will have their books published by Photolucida. In the past two years, two photojournalists have won this top award: my comrade Donald Weber (expect a DVA interview with him soon!) and new Magnum nominee Peter van Agtmael.
Thanks are due to our friend Eric Kayne who was a tremendous help in editing down the work to the final 8. Be sure to check out the DVA interview with him if you haven’t seen it yet. Also, congrats to fellow young photog Matt Eich, the only other person that I know on the list of finalists.
