FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
2012 International Photography Awards Announces Winners of the Competition
Deon Reynolds was awarded in the International Photography Awards Competition. International Photography Awards (IPA) has announced the winners of 2012’s competition.
Deon Reynolds was Awarded: Honorable Mention in Architecture – Historic category for the winning entry“Vernacular Architecture of the Western United States.”
ABOUT the Winner:
Photographing since he was seven, Deon Reynolds began investigating and documenting the rich history of the American West with his father, Robert Reynolds, a prolific artist and Portland Art Museum instructor of drawing and design. He shaped Deon’s art career through art history and constant practice. Curiosity led him to take his black & white landscape photographs with plastic cameras. Their simplicity and spontaneity allows him to be more emotionally responsive to his ever-changing environment. Reynolds’ camera of choice is a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic 35” disposable camera. He recycles the cardboard cover, removes the color film and modifies the interior. Using a darkroom tent, he reloads the camera with Tri-X black & white film and uses filtration while shooting and adjusts aspects of processing to maximize the film’s potential.
The 2012 International Photography Awards received nearly 18,000 submissions from 104 countries across the globe.
