I’m really delighted to be nominated !

For people who don’t know what this is about: The International Fine Art Photography Award (“Grand prix de la découverte”) is a competition with a clear mission—to celebrate fine art photography and discover new talent.

As a finalist my image will be:

  • Exhibited at the Paris Salon de la Photo (November 2013), visited by more than 80,000 photography lovers.
  • Accepted into the prestigious collection of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France
  • Exhibited in the Grand Prix de la Découverte online gallery and social media community

I think it’s nice to see that a more or less surreal photograph is being chosen in the experimental category! Who would have thought?


There are also other great finalist with terrific art. You can see them below.

Vive la france,


Edgar Verhoeven
