Los Angeles – POYi

I went to Los Angeles this past weekend for the Pictures of the Year International Awards and to make a presentation with my former co-workers and good friends Beth Macy and Seth Gitner who I shared the Best Documentary Prize with for a series we worked on last year called Age of Uncertainty.  It was a huge honor for us, and we were very humbled by the other photographers and producers with whom we were with.

POYi went over the top for the program, which had a beautiful gallery at the Annenberg Space for Photography.  I met some great photographers from all over the world, saw some old friends and enjoyed the time.  Seth and I took a walk through Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills near the hotel which was a trip to say the least…or at least it seemed to be the opposite of Mexico.

We’re wrapping up our year here in Mexico, and it was nice to take a short break from Guadalajara before returning now for the final two weeks.
