American Photographic Artists National Awards
September 08, 2020
Honored to receive two awards this year in the American Photographic Artists National Competition! #APA
One of my Journey photos with my delightful girl Tiny wins in the conceptual category. Tiny is a Silver Spangled Hamburg chicken. Composite: Tiny + Mykonos scene
I purchased chicks during April of this year during the pandemic.
I imagined traveling with my new pet family outside our restricted area. I photographed my girls regularly and started compositing their images into existing holiday scene photos.
In the animal category my image, “The Thinker” was included in this year's awards.
A primate portrait of a very personable Japanese Macaque AKA the SnowMonkey native to Japan.
