I’m really happy to have won two distinctions in the PROFESSIONAL ARCHITECTURE CATEGORY at the PX3 2013 – Prix de le Photographie de Paris, a Bronze (3rd Prize) for Advertising – Architecture Professionals and an Honorable Mention for Fine Art – Architecture Professionals for my series “Ode to Black“.
The level of the winning images was truly outstanding and many of the photographers that won distinctions are among the ones I admire and among my friends too. I will name a few, hoping not to miss too many: Jeff Gaydash, Marc Koegel (who will both be my co-instructors at the Chicago Fine Art Architectural Workshop), Pierre Pallegrini, Hengki Koentjoro, Olivier du Tré, Akira Takaue, Matthias Haltenhof, Thibault Roland, Michael de Guzman, Volker Birke, Francis Gagnon. I’m also very proud of my student Dragos Ioneanu, who has attended the Athens Architectural Workshop and who won the third prize at Fine Art Architecture Non-Professionals Category, with an image from the workshop.
This is the text of the press release of the PX3 competition, speaking about the awards.
