Since the cover of our first issue has made a striking impression, I would like to further congratulate Catlin Harrison for recently taking first prize in the self portrait category of the Julia Margaret Cameron awards hosted by the WPGA. Her winning photograph, “Self-Image(green)”, the photograph that won the non-professional editors’ choice award of Camera Obscura’s inaugural contest and graced our first cover, will be included in an upcoming awards exhibition in Buenos Aires in 2011. Another image in the series has been included in an exhibition at the Lana Santorelli Gallery in New York.

We have also recently added stories for our next issue from Thisbe Nissen, Mark Budman, and Sunshine LeMontree. It remains a humbling endeavor to consider all the intelligent and imaginative stories and photographs we still have to choose from for the Winter 2010 issue.
