Who is quoted at the end of a foreword! The book was created out of a contest and as a homage to the photographer Alex Webb. 169 artists from all over the world have immortalized themselves with pictures on over 500 pages. The exhibition of the same name is currently running within the International Photo Days in Trieste, Italy. There are 5 pictures of me in the book and one in the exhibition. The crowning glory of an exciting first year in the competitive environment.

Happy to announce that my photo 'leaving' was selected among the winning pictures in the 'Landscapes' Contest by Blank Wall Gallery, Athens and will be part of an exhibition from 13th to 25th of November 2020.

I took this photo on the train on my way from Wagga Wagga to Melbourne, Australia. It's part of a series and will be available at my shop soon.

'challenge' was selected among the winning pictures in the 'Fine Art' Contest by Blank Wall Gallery, Athens and was part of an exhibition from 9th to 21st of October 2020.

This photo is one from a challenge that I had posted on my Facebook page and in an art group and that I then edited. Anyone could send pictures that were as boring as possible or ones that would normally be deleted. It was exciting and sometimes a real challenge. This was actually good before, as you can see on the right picture. In my eyes it just got peppier and cooler. So the title of the picture is 'challenge'.
Of course I submitted it with this info and got the permission from the young lady seen in the picture to show it. Thank you, Berivan Sarikaş for your support and trust! www.blankwallgallery.com

Happy to announce that my photo "misconception of love" was selected in the 'Best Shot' contest by Blank Wall Gallery, Athens and was part of the first virtual exhibition by BWG from June to October 2020. www.blankwallgallery.com

'contact distance' was selected in the 'Corona Creative' contest by 'K|Lens', Saarbrücken and is now part of a book that can be purchased. The proceeds go to 'Doctors without boarders'.

Part of the competition was a short statement that should be written down and also is be printed in the book:
'I took this photo on a long walk with my boyfriend during the first weekend of lockdown. It’s taken through a net that is hanging on a golf course to prevent balls from leaving the green. Some leaves got stuck in the net and it looked like birds that got caught in flight. We talked about freedom in many different ways. People have started to complain recently that the government is taking away their freedom. I think this crazy time has put many things into perspective and my hope is that people remember these days when it’s all over, and appreciate what we have.'
