" I have had the honor of being the Co-Chair of the Lucie Awards since it's inception, 11 years ago. As such, I have been able to travel the World! I've experienced a multitude of different cultures, have been a part of people’s daily lives, their most intimate moments, enraged by unimaginable poverty, cruelty, war and it's devastation.
Through my travels, I've seen close up, countless faces filled with joy and tragedy, amazing animals, both domestic and wild, microorganisms unseen by the naked eye. I have viewed incredible vistas, marveled at breathtaking architecture, and have been frightened by the horrendous effects of climate change.
Yes, I've been fortunate to travel this globe, but it's all been without ever leaving my chair. I've seen it through the world of images submitted to the IPA.
Looking at an amazing image impacts us, draws us in, no matter what the subject. It can change us, and finally expand our own world through another's insight and vision. It's the true power of a photograph.
The works in this Best of Show are outstanding examples of photography's unavoidable ability to startle and impress.
To me, Photography is the real "instant message" to one's soul. I am thankful to be part of photography's global community. "
