I will be taking part in this years 'Emerging' group exhibition organised by Photo District News (PDN) Magazine from June 6th to September 20th 2015 in Annenberg Space for Photography, 2000 Avenue of the Stars, Los Angeles, CA.

The exhibit explores how a new generation of photographers examines a variety of topics, from the personal to the global: youth culture, family, the environment, economic uncertainty, conflict and civil unrest, and the nature of the photographic image.
