I don’t often post about competitions and awards as there seems to be a new one every week, but the new Hariban Photography Award is worth looking into. The collotype printing house Benrido in Kyoto is launching a new photography award for black-and-white work. No cash prize but the winner will get the opportunity to print a portfolio of 8 collotype prints in Kyoto (2 week trip to Kyoto, all expenses paid) and to be exhibited at the Kyotographie 2015 festival. Having visited Benrido myself and seen the results of this unique process (they are one of the only remaining places to still work with collotype printing) this award is definitely one worth winning.

Submissions are open until 30 June 2014. 

Curacao rain showers. 2014

Ira Glass knows, Just do this one thing over, and over and over…And it’s going to take a while. 

While under water everything around me dissolves. Water submersions are becoming part of chapter 2, the working title for the work in progress following the book Concepts of Home, published in the summer of 2013. 

Probably written about the ongoing search before. Anyway, the search for home goes on. To be continued.
