This year, The International Photography Awards received 17836 of submissions from over 153 countries, and is pleased to declare that Terri Gold was awarded Honorable Mention in Event – Traditions and Cultures for the winning entry The Mermaid Parade in Coney Island.
The mermaid is an archetypal image that represents a woman who is at ease in the great waters of life, the waters of emotion and sexuality. Traditions and celebrations add rhythm and texture to our lives and provide a genuine feeling of community. I have been photographing the Mermaid Parade for 20 years and it never disappoints. The Parade celebrates the sand, the sea, the beginning of summer and the myths of Coney Island.

Humanity Photo Awards (HPA) is an international competition, aiming to call upon photographers all over the world to widely and deeply record and preserve the heritage of the folk culture. HPA finds a way for photography to ally with folklore, anthropology and sociology and its photo series provide the most systemic specimens and trustworthy evidence for cultural heritage, which is far beyond artistic value.
I am thrilled to have my photograph “Wodaabe Nomad at the Gerewol” selected to be part of the group exhibition Regarding Beauty. Juried by Kathleen Clark, the exhibit will be shown at The Center For Fine Art Photography March 6 – April 17, 2015; with an artist’s reception on March 6th. I am looking forward to being part of such a unique and beautiful collection of photography!
