I was honored to have two award winners in the annual American Photography 26 contest. The first image is of Colorado’s 120th Fighter Squadron pilot Captain TenEyck LaTourrette flying in formation with other F-16 pilots over Pikes Peak. Please see the July 2010 issue of 5280 magazine for the full feature.

The second image is of a 7-year-old boy named Lalo foraging in a Guatemalan landfill. It is one of my favorite journalistic photos, for the sense of hardship and lost youth that Lalo conveys. The photo was taken as part of a volunteer documentary project on Guatemala’s orphan crisis for Wide Horizons For Children. Both images will be published in the AP26 Photo Annual in November. Of the 8,000+ images submitted to the contest, 314 images were selected for the book.  To see my images and the other award winners, visit this link.Fighter Pilot Contest Winner
