One of the most important conferences and exhibitions for mobile photography and art is the Mobile Digital Arts and Creativity Summit in Palo Alto, CA each year. This year the Summit was both physical and virtual (last year, when I won an “Honorable Mention,” it was only virtual due to Covid-19). I was so incredibly thrilled (and surprised!) to be declared a Winner this year! So very honored. This is the piece that won: “past lives: silent renunciation.” It’s the first of five images in my “past lives” series.
