I just updated my website with a small selection of images from the project I worked on over the summer during my residency on the western coast of Ireland. For this body of work, I was recently selected as one of the winners of the Yousuf Karsh Prize in Photography, juried this year by Anne Havinga (Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Curator of Photographs, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), Leslie Brown (Curator, Photographic Resource Center) and Emily Isenberg (Director, LaMontagne Gallery).

Take a look. More photographs to come.
