NOMADS OF NIGER HONORED AT INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS 2015

This year, The International Photography Awards received 17832 of submissions from over 153 countries, and i was happy  to be  awarded Honorable Mention in  two categories -Events People : Culture and Architecture : Historical.

My ongoing body of work, “Still Points in a Turning World”, explores our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression. I am interested in the different ways in which people find meaning in their lives, how an individual explores his or her existence through their traditions.
