I was honored to have been invited to be the 2022 Art of Photography’s juror. I know, from working with jurors and the amount of entries they had to determine which images would make the cut, that my job would not be easy. I do not make my choices lightly, as there were so many excellent works entered. The major difficulty was having to choose only one from a series that worked so well together. Out of 452 I was asked to select 70. A difficult task indeed.
