Prix De La Photographie Paris - Gold


The book from my project “These Years Gone By…” has been selected as a Gold award winner in the Photo Book category of Prix De La Photographie Paris. It’s really exciting to have the book be recognized by an international audience as the subject matter touches on a very personal family story and how it interplays with world history during World War II.

The Winners gallery can be seen here.

About the Project:

These Years Gone By…is a love story told through my grandparents letters from World War II. From these letters, artifacts and old family photos, I have woven together a narrative that tells the story of this critical time in world history and challenging time in their personal history. The book was also ‘chosen’ for the American Photography 35 photo annual, selected for the Photo Book Exhibition at the Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA), and the Click! Photobook Exhibition at Horse & Buggy Press in Durham, North Carolina.
