Yay! My photo of Neverstore came in 2nd place in the Moscow international Foto Awards 2016 under the category “Advertising, Music”. The winner was a photo of U2 and the 3rd place winner was a photo of Taylor Swift. So my friends in Neverstore is in pretty good company I would say.

I also received two honorable mentions, one for “Editorial, Personality” with my photo of Dick & Dottie, and one for “Fine Art, Portrait” with my Ballerina.
