Last night, at the award ceremony, photographers from around the world have been awarded with the »New York Photo Awards«, one winner and two honorable mentions in each of the seven general categories and five student categories.
I’m very happy to announce, that I am the winner of the student category »Photographic Book«. I applied with my book »Ewig treu«, which portrays the lifestyle of student fraternities in Germany.
Last night I just returned from a 5-day-trip to Munich, where I exhibited my work The secret world of fraternities at the documentary photofestival FotoDoks 2010. Beside the familiar athmosphere and all the great people that I met and the phantastic photos that were shown in the former Hertie-Store »Puerto-Giesing«, one of the highlights for me was the meeting with Anders Petersen.
All in all it was a very intense and inspiring time for me. Chapeau to the initiators Robert Pupeter, Hans Herbig, Jörg Koopmann and Armin Smailovic and congratulation to this year’s winner Gordon Welters.
