My boxing photographs project is coming along very well. In November a portrait of Denzel was selected to a show at the Leslie Powell Gallery in Lawton, OK. It received the Juror's Selection award and has received a lot of great feedback. A couple weeks later, a series of images of Tevin was selected for a show at the gallery of the London Photographic Association. This series also won the Bronze in Documentary Photography.
It has been great to work with both of these galleries, and get to learn more about the "fine art world". Thanks to Kevin O'Connor at the London Photographic Association, and Nancy Anderson from the Leslie Powell Gallery for the photos of the openings! A very special thanks to Robin Damm of Fedex and awesome neighbor for helping to deal with the shipping--a 62 pound photograph is really a pain to deal with.
