As part of Trieste Photo Days Festival 2021 I was very excited to be picked as Best Author of the twelfth edition of the Urban Photo Awards. In their words "a recognition for his very personal authorial creativity"!
I was invited to exhibit Invisible Jumpers, chosen out of over 13000 entries, and was also very pleased to be given the chance to show my Aerial Fashion series.
The Invisible Jumpers project with Nina Dodd was also awarded an exhibition at the Civico Museum Museo Sartorio. The projects on display were selected by Laura Carlini Fanfogna, director of the Civic Museums of the Municipality of Trieste and Claudia Colecchia, head of the Photo Library and Library of the Civic Museums of the Municipality of Trieste. It will remain on display until January 6, 2022.
In addition the Invisible Jumpers series received an Honorable Mention in the Projects & Portfolios section, and I was also given an Honorable Mention in the Creative category for my photograph, Dre & Tom 2019:
I was also invited to give a talk with Nick Turpin, founder of the international collective iN-PUBLiC, discussing our vision of creativity in film and photography. Really stimulating discussion.
All in all, a lovely weekend in Trieste, with a big stash of awards to bring back home. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the festival such a success.
