Aurora photographer Lucas Gilman was recently featured on the Nik Software website. Here’s what they had to say, “To call photographer Lucas Gilman a “world traveler” might be inaccurate, or at the very least, incomplete…. Gilman goes to the kinds of places that take five days to get to, arriving at the nearest airport, taking a Jeep as far as the roads can go, then hiking into depths of jungle, out over plains of ice, down treacherous river waterfalls, and into the farthest reaches of the globe.”
The July issue of PDN showcased the 3rd annual Faces Contest Winners, and as usual, a solid showing of Aurora Photographers graced the pages. Kevin Horan’s portrait series of goats and sheep took a spot under the Animals category. Jason Florio’s amazing series called 930km African Odyssey photographing Alkalo (chief’s) while on a walking journey around the circumference of The Gambia, West Africa received a nod in the Environmental section. Kevin Steele also was issued some ink under the Environmental category for a portrait of a rock climber while on a multi-day ascent up El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. And last but not least, Woods Wheatcroft found his way into the Environmental category with a self portrait created while throwing his camera high above his head and having the shutter click mid-air. Pick up the July issue of PDN and check out all the winners in print.
Also freshly in print, a nod needs to be given to new Aurora photographer Myles McGuinness for nailing a Communications Arts Award in their Photo Annual 51 edition. The image captures a surfer floating on a longboard next to a pier waiting for the next wave to roll in.
