I need your help: Recently I was informed that LensCulture had noticed a piece of work I had shared via social media. They encouraged me that the image has a very good chance of a positive outcome in the “LensCulture Exposure Awards 2020” and that I should probably, if interested, submit the image:
Needless to say I did just that :-)
The photo I've submitted is called “EAGLE HUNTER’S DAUGHTER” a photograph taken in 2017 that was part of a series following a nomadic Kazakh family and their livestock as they made their 150km Spring migration across the Altai Mountains with temperatures as low as -40C . They move about a thousand animals including yaks, camels goats and eagles.
So why do I need your help? Well because ultimately the submission is at the mercy of my friends family and the fine gentlemen and ladies of the Photography community! I need your help by sharing my submission on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn and also favouriting the submission on the link provided below.
Without this they’ll still be judged but the lack of exposure will weigh on the decision ultimately made from my understanding.
Thank you in advance for all of the support!
