    Stephen Wilkes, Michael Warren, and Joe Pugliese Among Communication Arts Winners

    Every year Communication Arts, one of the premier creative publications in the world, releases the "Photo Annual" that includes a list of photographers whose work they consider the best in visual communication around the world. Three of our photographers won the distinction of being recognized for stories they contributed over the last year. We congratulate Joe Pugliese, Michael Warren, and Stephen Wilkes for this honor.

    These are the stories that grabbed Communication Arts' attention:

    Joe Pugliese had the chance to photograph the cast of Mad Men for the cover of The Hollywood Reporter immediately ahead of the series finale. Joe had been a fan of the series since the beginning, so it was an honor and a personal achievement to help them strike the perfect tone. I didn’t want it to feel period,” says Joe. “I wanted to just ride that line between the characters we all know and their actual real life personalities.” Communication Arts pulls out the photograph of Jon Hamm as the perfect example and encapsulation of this show that was at once a period piece but also a portrait of how the American psyche has developed, how the American dream plays on a life, and what a man becomes to succeed in our culture.

    For weeks, Michael Warren traveled the world to understand Total Energy and how they impact the world. As Michael reminds us. “France has no [energy] resources of their own so they have their fingers in all these other places all over the world. They’re trying to do something good.” Total Energy takes responsibility for the world because the world is their partner. Their reach is global, so their outreach is equally global. They are giving back in as many communities as possible, including communities in Africa where they’ve constructed solar powered lights that allow the local workers to continue producing after the sun has set. It’s improving their productivity and changing their local government for the better. Communication Arts highlighted one photograph of some women in Indonesia that perfectly encapsulated how Total is committed to powering people.

    Walking through Terminal 3 at the Dubai Airport could be described as walking into the future. But as Stephen Wilkes’ story with Vanity Fair proved: it’s very much the present. The West has fallen behind when it comes to commercial aviation and few reminders are as stark as the hub in Dubai. Stephen was granted unprecedented access to get a full view of the working at Terminal 3, including the opportunity to create a sweeping time-lapse video. Communication Arts focused on the scope of the airport (and their gigantic AirBuses) that looks almost like an enclosed city. Here’s to a lifestyle of travel we can all look forward to.
