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.
