It is with great pride that I can announce that I have been inducted into the SIENA Awards Hall of Fame. The Siena Awards were born from the experience of the Siena International Photo Awards, an international event that, in a few years, has managed to become known as one of the most important photo competitions in the world.
When Luca Venturi (creator and artistic director) first imagined the SIENA Awards, he set his target on making Siena the heart of the photography world that would bring photographers together from around the world.
“We are happy to have created a large family, a community with photography at its centre, as a form of international language that connects people of every culture and social background. A dream come true, supported by partners and institutions that together with us continue to invest in the power of imagination and the power that images have to be able to tell stories full of meaning " – Luca Venturi
The Hall of Fame was created to recognise the value of those who have believed in the importance of the project since the first edition of the Siena International Photo Awards.
It is an honour to have my name amongst such esteemed photographers and a pleasure to be part of the wider SIENA Awards family.
