The Black and White Spider Awards is the contest judged by the most respected names in photography. I am proud of announcing that three of my images were selected for awards in the 15th Annual award.

Chained but Bonded was photographed in Thailand (February 2020). This is a powerful image for its content and execution. You can read more about the on-going project about elephants at

I received two honorable mentions in the Silhouette and Portraiture categories. “Get Milk” is part of a 15 year project that lead to the publication of the award winning book, Cultures in Transition. The book received 9 awards for best photography book of 2019! More info.

Congratulations to all the winning photographers. It is a privilege to be part of such a group of inspiring Black and White photographers!
