It’s that time of year again…where everyone sets out to reflect on the past year and look ahead to the new year. As this is a photography blog, I thought I’d reflect on the images I’ve made throughout this year and, just for fun, share my favorites!
After reviewing my 2013 images I was a little surprised. Throughout the year I felt like what I was most passionate about and was working on most often were my architectural abstracts or “archistracts”. And while I absolutely love this type of photography it seems the majority of my favorite images were of the urban landscape. It’s clear black and white is my preferred aesthetic, as only 3 of the 15 favorites are in color.
Here they are (shown in the order they were shot)..they my not have garnered the most ‘likes’ or awards but they are what kept me excited about photography throughout the year.
Thank you so much for your support throughout the year! It’s been an exciting one…from exhibiting in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City to smaller cities in Illinois; receiving 2 honorable mentions in the International Photography Awards and 2nd place for an image from my Hometown Series with the New York Center for Photographic Art to a few other awards; being interviewed by three different publications (Rfoto Folio, EWW & Interesting Photographers) and having my work published in a number of publications—some online (National Geographic’s Photo of the Day on August 2, F-Stop Magazines B&W Issue and others) and some in print (Stark Magazine, Capture My Chicagoo III book and a couple exhibition catalogs) and an exciting end to my From the ‘L’ series, which is now a book.
