LensWork Featured Project

LensWork Featured Project

I am beyond thrilled to announce that I have my first featured project in the esteemed LensWork magazine. I was introduced to LensWork many years ago, and it has always been a dream of mine to have a project published in what I consider to be the most important fine art photography publication of our time.

I want to send a special thank you to Jennifer Renwick, Cole Thompson, John Barclay, and Brooks Jensen himself for their continual encouragement to develop my work into cohesive projects, and submit them to LensWork.

A full project submission involves submitting 40-60 images that all work together cohesively, which is not an easy task. I spent many months laboring over the selections and the processing. Eventually, I had to tell myself that perfection is the enemy of good. I reached a point that I was happy enough with and then put myself out there, fully prepared for rejection. After not hearing back for many months, I thought for sure this project would never see the light of day, but I also knew that Brooks is a busy man and I should have patience.

Although this is my first time being published in LensWork, it is the second publication in the LensWork family. The first was in a monograph with my partner Jennifer Renwick, titled "Reverence: Death Valley", which we still have a few copies left if you want one!

If you're not familiar with LensWork, you can learn more here. It is a bi-monthly publication printed with the utmost care and features inspiring work. If you're looking for something a bit different and focused more on the world of fine art photography, I highly recommend subscribing.

Also, I encourage you to submit your work to LensWork. It's an incredible challenge that will make you a better photographer. Even if you're not ready to submit 60 images, you can also submit an image suite, which only require 10-15 images. Learn more about submitting your work here.

You can subscribe to receive future issues of LensWork, or purchase a single copy here.
