Journalism Student at Northwestern University

2nd Place Portrait at the IPPA Student Best of Photography 2012

I had the  opportunity to attend the Illinois Press Photographers’ Association Midwest Photo Summit this Friday and Sunday. There were many wonderful speakers, including the world famous (former Daily Northwestern photog) Vincent Laforet.

I had one image recognized in the 2012 Student Best of Photography contest, a portrait I made last Spring:

Nick Lucietti, alone in his home, plays his father's old accordion. Lucietti says his parents' passings, together with his divorce, inspire his art.

These two images rose through several rounds of eliminations, and it was rewarding to sit in as the judges deliberated to pick out their favorites:
