I received notice yesterday from PhotoLucida’s Critical Mass Competition that I was selected in their top 50 list. The news isn’t up on the PhotoLucida website yet, but one of the reviewers, Lisa Hunter–quite enthusiastically–posted the results on her blog. In time, PhotoLucida will put the work of the top 50 on their website for all to see.
Critical Mass is a competition entered by hundreds of photographers from all over the world. From those masses, 150 are selected to be shown to the reviewers (quite a long list of reviewers), who then vote and whittle down the list to the top 50, plus 3 winners of whose work they publish little books. So it’s an honor to be selected in the top 50, and I’m hopeful about what may come of it, as other photographers, collectors, curators, and publishers look at the finalists’ work.
For Critical Mass, I entered 10 selections from my documentary series on eating disorders, Skeleton in the Closet.
