What a way to welcome fall! The results of this year's PRIX DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE PARIS (PX3) are in, and I have been granted two awards! I am always overwhelmed when a body of work gets international recognition, especially working from a small island like Cyprus.
This year I submitted two projects to PX3. One was the artwork I created for the release of Alexis Sunder’s debut solo EP, under the same name. The other was of my work capturing the inner workings and character of PELETICO; a Cyprus-based company manufacturing high quality paints, building and industrial materials.
These were two very different bodies of work, that needed very different approaches. The work for Alex Sunder's album cover was scouted and setup with a whole crew. The work for PELETICO was of documentary nature, just me spending a week in the establishments and with their people, capturing the heart and philosophy of this company, through simple, everyday moments.
Yet both projects shared one thing, total creative freedom. For that I have my clients to thank, for showing me the trust needed to create work I feel proud of.
