Hurricane Ike Portfolio Featured in Two Prestigious International Publications

I am happy to announce that my photographic portfolio Hurricane Ike: Images from the Debris Field, has been selected to be featured in two prestigious international publications this fall.

On October 1, twenty photographs from the series were featured in the current issue of F-Stop Magazine (Issue #49 – October/November 2011), an online magazine showcasing contemporary photography from emerging and contemporary photographers worldwide.  The photographs were selected to be part of F-Stop’s annual portfolio issue.

In addition, the portfolio has also been selected for inclusion in the 2011 Silvershotz Folios.  This journal of contemporary photography is distributed worldwide, with the 2011 Folios being published later this year.  Major booksellers sell and can order the journal, but it can also be purchased online

Work for both issues is selected through a jury review only and is highly competitive, so I feel honored to have had the portfolio selected for both journals.  Still the work continues, for although most of the images in the portfolio were shot within a month after Hurricane Ike struck Galveston in 2008, the portfolio is still growing.  Sifting through the thousands of images to make the finished photographs has taken much time and the work continues.  Photographs from the series can be seen on my website, with new photos being added as production of the series continues.
