B&A Photographers in the PDN Photography Annual 2012
Every year PDN honors the best photography from the past year in the PDN Photography Annual. A panel of judges including art directors, editors, and other photographers, select the winners in categories including Photo Books, Advertising, and Personal Work. This year three B&A photographers, Stephen Wilkes, Michael Schnabel, and Joey L. make the list.
Stephen Wilkes and Michael Schnabel were both honored in the Personal Work category. Wilkes was awarded for his "Day to Night" series, which features photographs of New York City landmarks and locations captured over the course of about ten hours. Schnabel was recognized for his series of raw, natural landscapes. The images explore the boundaries of photography as it relates the paintings or works on paper. Schnabel was also awarded in the Photo Book category for his book Michael Schnabel 2001-2010 which accompanied his exhibition of the same name last year in Germany. In the Web Sites category, Joey L. was recognized for his personal site, www.joeyl.com.
Wilkes' "Day to Night" series was also awarded the Adobe Breakthrough Photography Award. The award recognizes artists creating compelling works of art through digital imaging.
The PDN Photography Annual 2012 is in the magazine June 2012 issue, on newsstands now.
