Represented by Aspen Gallery, New England

I’m very excited to share that a selection of my work is now available through Aspen Gallery, New England, US. 

Aspen Gallery was founded by Johnny Patience, one of my fellow fine art photographers I have known since the days of Flickr when I first started photography. When Johnny introduced me to the Aspen Gallery, I knew it was something I wanted to take part. 

The gallery also awards an annual $5,000 Artist Fellowship to honor artistic excellence and advance the careers of emerging artists. Fellowships are merit-based awards that are informed by an applicant’s work (details about the grant and how to apply will be announced shortly).

Photography for the New Nokia SmartPhone

I'm proud to see one of my pictures selected as the new Nokia smartphone default background! You may have seen it in various places. There is an addition of another of my images in the catalog of the phones backgrounds. The mobilephone actually sold out in a minute in China! 

Here is a view of the phone and picture.
