On This Side There Are Dreams, Too shortlisted for the Leica Oskar Barnack Award

Excited to announce that my new series “On this side there are dreams, too”, focusing on on the people and landscapes behind the newspaper headlines of Mexico’s northern border has been shortlisted for the prestigious Leica Oskar Barnack Award

After years of working independently on this project, this recognition means a lot to me. Thanks to Zelda Cheatle for the nomination and the ongoing support over the years and to the jury, Caroline Hunter, Luca Locatelli, Whitney Hollington Matewe, Francois Hebel, Karin Rehn-Kaufmann and the team at Leica Camera.

A collective exhibition with the fantastic work by all shortlisted photographers will follow in Wetzlar, Germany, in October.
