Big congrats to Buck Holzemer, the photographer behind those beautiful, iconic portraits of our Common Hope students. For this work, Buck recently won third place in Fine Art Portrait for the International Photography Awards!
According to the IPA, the awards set out “to salute the achievements of the world’s finest photographers, to discover new and emerging talent, and to promote the appreciation of photography.” In their 11th year, they are “one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today.” More info on the awards here.
What well-deserved recognition. We are so grateful for the generous gifts of time and talent given by Buck and producer Patti Petrich over more than four years and five trips to Guatemala. The images do so much to convey the spirit of our students to those who can support their education and help create a brighter future for Guatemala.
