So technically, I didn’t win an award – but my images did. The photo editor of the Wall Street Journal emailed me a few weeks back (yes, I know I’m very late with this post…) to let me know that my images of “The Picasso of Pumpkin Carving” won an “Excellence in Photography” award by the Society of News Design (SND).
I have to admit, when I first received the assignment to photograph a pumpkin carver in Arizona…I didn’t know what to expect. That is, until I saw the work of Ray Villafane. Do yourself a favor and check out his work. It’s simply amazing.
