I am very pleased and happy to share with you that my photo "Faith" has been awarded an Honorable Mention in the ND Awards 2022 international photography contest in the Editorial: Photo Essay / Story category.
(This photo, which is so precious for me, has also been awarded a Bronze award and an Official Selection in the 2021 TIFA awards.)
Faith (Inspired by the items immigrants and refugees carry with them during their "exile")
What does really mean to stay connected with your faith? Is it a profound need, a personal quest for spirituality, the fear of the unknown, and death? Is it a tradition, following the steps of your family and your ancestors? Is it just a plexus of laws, rituals, and interdictions or something deeper? This image shows a man holding in his arms an old icon, a relic of his family, passing from generation to generation. What`s the emotional weight of such an object?
