We’ll start the week in NYC with the Lucie Awards.
This event is considered to be the Academy Awards of photography.
And judging by the list of honorees, thats a pretty good analogy.
Go ahead. Click the link. Make your day.
At a lunch on Sunday, many of this years honorees were in attendance to meet and greet.
Duane Michaels, whom I’ve always been a huge fan of ,was one of the biggest surprises for me.
Yes, there is a wry sense of humor and philosophic outlook on life in his work. But somehow I didn’t expect the loose, ring leader fun guy.
He certainly had Eikoh Hosoh in a good mood.
Sponsored by Pilsner Urquell beer, this event is in it’s 4th year and has already garnered the respect of the photography community.
I must applaud the folks at Pilsner Urquell also. An advertiser who supports photography in its purest form and shares the passion with all of us, is not just a cool thing but essential.
In the coming days we will post some videos from a project sponsored by them on our MEDIA page. I’ll wait to discuss them until they are up and running.
