Second place awarded in NYC Photo Exhibition

I’m elated that NYC gallery director Darren Ching juried in two of my photographs for the NYC4PA photography exhibition titled Decay, Corrosion, Rust 2020. Mr. Ching selected 50 images from over 1700 entries and I was awarded a second place with cash prize. 

The two photographs were from Faces of the Alcazar, a photography project documenting 90 year old magazine clippings still attached to the walls of a closed section in the Lightner Museum.  I discovered these during a recent photo shoot and was immediately drawn to them on many levels.  Once the servants quarters of the former Alcazar Hotel, they were most likely added by the Irish and Italian immigrants who served the wealthy patrons of the hotel. For me, these faded fragments of the past evoke the ephemeral nature of memory and fame.
