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.

The premiere exhibition Memories of the Mankind IX will be held in September 2015 in Shangri-la City, Yunnan Province, China. 

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.

Terri Gold’s images from the Nomads in Niger series and the Omo Valley of Ethiopia series were just published as a three page spread in Photo+ a prestigious Korean photography magazine. Both featured image series are from Terri’s ongoing body of work “Still Points in a Turning World”.

Excited to be turning the glossy magazine pages of the Photo+ Magazine feature of my images from Africa! It is  nice to have your work embraced by an international photography community.
