I’m all packed up and ready to make the leap to Italy today with a layover in Amsterdam that I plan on taking full advantage of with a long city walk.
It’s time once again for the Siena International Photography Awards (SIPA) event & Festival in beautiful Tuscany. I’m looking forward to meeting photographers around the world and reuniting with friends from Pistoia to Switzerland to Bangladesh.
The Pangea Prize represents a light drop which becomes, as if by magic, the symbol par excellence as the light nourishes photography. A metaphor of perfection, reflection, refraction, for optical lenses and imagination, the future and the world.
SIPA is a wonderful, grassroots organization founded by Luca Venturi. Read more about his story and his passion for travel and photography below in my piece for Street Photography Magazine.

On my way back home from Europe, I’m making a first-time stop in Montreal for Luca Bracali’s upcoming exhibition there.
