When I originally entered this exhibition, I was informed that one of my photos made it into the animal collection, and that I made it to level 3 in judging. I was under the impression my photos did not make it to the final event... Turns out I have, so it was a amazing surprise to open my e-mails today to this letter!!!
Another small triumph, for years of hard work, and as is human wondering if your work is actually worth the time you spend on it... So I will share with you all another piece of my joy...
The art of living your dream...

Photography holds power. The act of taking a photo acts as a historical marker and a capture of time. Just as archaeologists offer hypotheses about ancient societies based on cave paintings, historians of the future will base their conjectures about us on the photography that is happening at this very moment, including yours.
As technology makes our world more interconnected, the act of creation has become a universal language and a vital conversation. Your photography, represented at the Fifth Annual Exposure Award reception is a thrilling contribution to that dialogue.
It's been an honor to have your work included. Thank you for sharing your photography with us and with the world.
