2013 Prix de la Photographie (PX3), Paris Photo Prize

The Prix de la Photographie is one of Europe’s most prestigious photography competitions. Each year, the organization receives thousands of entries from around the globe. The 2013 Prix de la Photographie recently announced the results. I was ecstatic to learn that my imagery from a project in Mozambique was recognized with an Honorable Mention in the Editorial Category. To capture the imagery, I had traveled to Mozambique with VOX United (a non-profit organization based in Michigan). With the assistance of their team, I was able to gain access to remote villages and focus my camera on pertinent issues regarding water well installation, its effect on the community and accessibility to clean water. The portfolio that received the award is below.
