Honorably Mentioned at Lens Culture

I just heard that a photo of mine received an honorable mention in the Lens Culture International Exposure competition. Yey!

With over 6,000 entries coming from 48 countries, there were four winners and 25 honorable mentions. I’m honored to be listed among such great work.

Check it out here.

The photo comes from a series I did on the life and death of a calf named Carole who lived her short life on a lovely farm in Normandy. The impetus for the project was to know an animal personally, that I then eat.

This photo on the cutting board is meaningful to me because though she is no longer alive, she seems present and aware. It is the intersection of the whole experience.

The head of Carole, a cross-bred calf who lived her 5-month-long life on a farm in Normandy, France. She was brought to slaughter in March of 2008. On the day of this photo, her body returned home in boxes and was labeled, frozen, cooked and re-chopped on this kitchen table.
