My friend, Grant, is a stellar guy--kind, endearing, and smart-as-a-whip! Not to mention generous.
Through the promotion of the Sony Art of Storytelling Photo Contest, he is not only supporting my Burning Man photography, but also the subject of one of my photos--our mutual friend, Erik, a muscled brunette whom I shot shirtless in the dawn of the Black Rock Desert. It was an epic, early-morning moment; the image bespeaks our sense of connection with one another and the vast, jejune wilderness.
That said, Grant is a dear man, and it's truly an honor to receive his praise and support:
"My good friend and mentor Catherine Hall recently had two of her images selected as finalists in the Sony Art of Storytelling Photo contest at Digital Photo Magazine - and one of the photos is of my good friend Eric Hudock at Burning Man! Please consider checking out the finalists gallery and giving Catherine your vote! http://bit.ly/dvijS1"
