Last time was my “Beauty In Hell” project… this time is my “THE SOUL OF JAPAN: Profound Tranquility or Modern Loneliness?” were I tried to present and describe a feeling of detachment and kind of “self inflicted” loneliness which may seem very strange to a non Japanese or someone traveling to Japan for the first time (full description on the project page).

IPA FAMILY OF MAN Honorable Mention Tony Corocher

IPA 2016 Oneshot Competition: Family of Man – 2 Honorable Mentions for the 2 photos sent

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve received 2 Honorable Mentions for the 2 photos I sent to the “2016 Oneshot Competition: Family of Man” by IPA (International Photography Awards – Los Angeles). These images are also part of my ongoing Project “Beauty In Hell: Beauty over Drama”.

An international distinguished panel of Jurors has selected the winning images. I am very glad to announce that both images I sent were awarded with an Honorable Mention
1. “Power Rangers. Laughing from the heart”. Part of my photo-essay “SONS OF THE MONKS: Children left Behind” (https://www.tonycorocher.com/sons-of-monks-children-left-behind/)
2. “Homescape… Traditional and modern”. Part of my photo-essay “PORTRAITS OF STRENGH: Ethnic Women in North Vietnam”. (https://www.tonycorocher.com/portraits-of-strength-women-in-ethnic-vietnam/).

In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City.  He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, marriage, and Death

This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works.

PX3 CERTIFICATE, Px3 Paris, Prix de la Photographie Paris, Tony Corocher, Awards, press release

A great honor… I’ve been invited to join the New LensCulture International Network of selected photographers.

Most pleased to have been invited by the editors of LensCulture, one of the most influential contemporary photography magazines and networks worldwide, to join their new Selective Network of International Photographers, giving me a fantastic opportunity to show my work to a global audience, to galleries, to editors and to other networks from a higher standpoint.

The world of contemporary photography (photo journalism and documentary especially) has become incredibly competitive and today it is very, very hard to stand out and make a living… but you know, people say stubbornness and passion are very hard to overcome…

 

LensCulture, Tony Corocher,

I’d like to personally thank the LensCulture team for what they have done so far for photography and emerging photographers like me around the world; thank you for advancing the understanding of a still new and amazing language; thank you for what you for helping, giving opportunities and not discriminating; thank you for been a serious and very professional network…

I will do my best to make sure my future work will be worth of this invitation.
