My series, Young and Abandoned, was selected for the Grand Prize at Feztiv Art this past Friday. The festival continues this week at Art+ Shanghai. My thanks go out to the jury for the festival included: Agnes Cohade, Co-founder and Gallery Director of Art+ Shanghai Gallery, Ana Gonzalez: Co-founder and Gallery Director of Art+ Shanghai Gallery, Diana Freundl: the art director of Art + Shanghai Gallery, , Sylvie Levey: Film Director in China, Luc Buono: Metersbonwe Asia Pacific Vice-President, Jean Loh: curator at Beaugeste Photo Gallery. Patrick Wack was awarded second place. There was also an amateur division featuring strong photography, but I don’t have the names of the winners names at hand, unfortunately.
As part of the grand prize, I will take part in an exhibition later this year and will receive a distribution contract with myfab.com. More details about those will be announced here as they become available.
I would also like to express my gratitude to the organizers of the festival, especially Marie-Christine Moreels and the rest of the French Junior Chamber International of Shanghai, and the staff and owners of Art+ for their tremendous generosity.
