I am extremely glad to share with you the announce that one of my portfolios, “Ice Rubble”, has been awarded with a Bronze Medal in the Professional Category of the last edition of the Px3 “Prix de Photographie de Paris!
Therefore, another of my photographs, “Burning Peak”, has been awarded an Honorable Mention.
I could not be happier! Even if, after all, contests are a highly subjective matter. But the truth is that the feedback they give in terms of how our vision evolves and how it is perceived by others is incredible valuable.
