I'm excited to announce that a selection of my seriesAboardhas been featured on CNN photos, with an interview by Melody Smith discussing my work. The project continues to explore life of passengers and crews I have encountered over several cruises.
"Beneath the endless parade of buffets and lazy afternoon shuffleboard games, life on a cruise ship contains a mysterious anonymity, a unifying (defacing?) feeling of being lost in the crowd—"on this floating city, we become one."

Some of my photos are among the best photos of the year at Kolga Award 2015!
They are now exhibited at "The best photos of the year KOLGA AWARD 2015 EXHIBITION" in Kostava Str. Hotel "Rooms", Tbilisi, Georgia, during the Kolga Tblisi Photo.
In the Mood: Photography and the Everyday explores how photography translates everyday experiences through a selection of images prompted by some of the intimate activities—including eating, sleeping, imagining, laughing, and crying—that shape the moments of daily life. The exhibition aims to present a modest portrait of the experience of everyday life conveyed through the photographic lens, and includes the work of four international contemporary photographers: Simona Bonanno, Goseong Choi, Noah Kalina, and Joann Pai.
Marking the 25th anniversary of the Irene Carlson Gallery of Photography, In the Mood: Photography and the Everyday is the final exhibition of the academic year.
Six photographs of my Ordinary World series will be there.
