Shortlisted for FotoFilmic'14

I'm stocked to have been shortlisted for FotoFilmic'14. I submitted ten photographs, and it's always a great feedback to see which photographs are being selected by the curators. My selected photographs are "John John Florence waiting for a last chance wave", "The head of the pack", and "Waiting between sets".

 I was lucky this year to stumble across Fotofilmic a publication and curation platform, created by VNB, that is dedicated to film photography.
