I received the wonderful news this week that I have been awarded Grand Prize in Santa Fe Photographic Workshops’ 2018 “Diversity” competition with one of my favorite images from Ethiopia, a portrait of a Suri family wearing some of their amazing headdresses in the Omo Valley.
With my work, particularly my ongoing series “Still Points in a Turning World“, I am always exploring our universal cross-cultural truths: the importance of family, community, ritual and the amazing diversity of its expression, so this award is especially meaningful to me.
Many thanks to Santa Fe Photographic Workshops for this incredible honor, and congratulations to the other winners and honorable mentions; may we all continue to celebrate diversity together. Though we may not see our own customs and traditions in these images, it is my hope that we recognize our common humanity.
570 women photographers from 63 countries participated in the 11th edition, collectively submitting 5,732 images. It is a huge honor to be featured alongside the beautiful work of so many great women photographers.
My images selected are from Kenya, India, Ethiopia, and the Mermaid Parade of Coney Island.
I’m thrilled to be included along with many great artists in the exhibition Let There Be Light (And Shadow), juried by my mentor in photography, Harvey Stein. Join me at the opening next Thursday, February 1st from 6-8PM at Umbrella Arts Gallery.

“Photographing in the non-visible spectrum is both magically haunting and unpredictable. It requires great technical understanding of both capture and post-production. And it takes a great deal of understanding and practice of the craft as well as how the photographer’s specific equipment will capture and interpret reality. Successful IR imagery demands a substantial expertise to master its technical and the aesthetic aspects…” – Laurie Klein, Juror
