Very excited to have been chosen as a 2018 Finalist for Photolucida Critical Mass for my series Descendants. This is such a tremendous honor and an incredible opportunity to get the work in front of 200 jurors. This will be the third time making it as a CM finalist, I'm crossing fingers that this year I make it into the Top 50. This series would not be possible if it weren't for my cousin Michael. Michael is the historian of our family and has an amazing archive of family photos that once belonged to my grandparents. He was generous enough to let me take whatever I liked. The series is dedicated to my grandparents, Alfredo and Annunziata Papa.
