In the world of photography, receiving an IPA — International Photography Award — is a huge honor. Even to be a finalist is an outstanding achievement. So we are incredibly excited for our long-time friend and collaborator, Maxine Helfman, for being selected as a finalist for the International Photographer of the Year award for her fine art work. The finalists and winners were recognized at Carnegie Hall in NYC this past Sunday at The Lucie Awards, a premier annual event honoring the greatest achievements in photography. Not too shabby! In the end, the award went to photographer Sandro. More on him and the other category winners can be found at http://www.photoawards.com/en/
In our ten years of working with Max on projects such as NorthPark Center and Eiseman Jewels, we’ve been blown away by her incredible eye and creative vision — not to mention her calm, cool and collected disposition, her tenacious work ethic and how incredibly prolific she is. We’re honored to be in such good company.
