Have you ever had one of those weeks that was stressful for a variety of reasons and no matter how hard you worked it felt as if you were running backwards instead of reaching the target you were shooting for? That was the type of week I had. So, when more good news in the area of my art work began to flow in at the end of this week, I was reminded of the fact that hard work is eventually rewarded as long as you just stick with it and never give up.
To begin with, I had work chosen for “MobFORMAT: The Press” at the Format International Photography Festival in Derby, UK. This was a unique exhibition deemed to be the first mobile photo press and curated by the festival goers themselves. Over 6,000 photos were printed and displayed over a period of 30 days. The concept was to “print out the thousands of photos being shared on EyeEm every day and create the largest interactive exhibition the mobile photo world has ever seen.” Here is a time-lapse video from the event:
I was also informed that three of my images were chosen for the “Physical Streams 2” exhibition at the Overpass Gallery in Loano, Italy. This is the second year in a row I have had images chosen for this exhibit of 100 mobile photographs presented in a giant mosaic. Last year’s exhibit was also on display at the Nuovo Film Studio in Savano, Italy.
My three pieces chosen for “Physical Streams 2.”

And then today, I woke up to find out I was named “Artist of the Day” on iPhoneArt.com again:
All is well within my soul this morning and I am ready to keep my nose to the grindstone and never, ever give up! :-)…
