I'm thrilled to be among this year's recipients of the Infinity Awards from ICP, the International Center of Photography. This year, the awards are given to artists whose bodies of work focus on environmental justice, climate change, conservation, and related environmental issues. It's an honor to receive the award for documentary practices and photojournalism, alongside Esther Horvath, Sebastião Salgado, Sky Hopinka and Gabriela Hearst.

The awards will take place in New York City on April 25th, with a panel on April 24th.

Grateful to all who have supported me on this journey. Pictured here: photographing in an ice cave in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in 2013, photographing my first project in the Arctic.
