This week, I was pleasantly surprised to discover an envelope from the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar in my mailbox. As it turns out, I won an award in the "Pictorial" category of their 2013 photojournalism contest for my photo of a cat crouching on a kolam in Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu.
Kolams are powder floor drawings, used to bless homes in South India. The kolam in my photo was drawn outside of the kitchen hut on a family farm where I learned to fry delicious dosas and cook some incredible curries. I am so honored to have my photo selected as a pictorial winner, and to be able to share a piece of my adventure with others.
You can check out more winning photos from the entire contest here.
In other news, I'll be updating this site soon with my work from November, including a new photo documentary along with several lifestyle shoots.
All the best,
