Congratulations to ArtCenter 7th term student Urim Ray Hong. Ray received the First Place 2018 Editorial Photographer of the Year presented by the International Photography Awards for his series City Soleil: Eager to Learn. You can view the series here.
City Soleil is a small village within the Port-au-Prince metropolitan area in Haiti. Unlike its name—City of the Sun—however, it seems as though there is only a glimpse of light remaining.
Hong also received an Honorable Mention for City Soleil: A Light in the Darkness.
The International Photography Awards™ conducts an annual competition for professional, amateur, and student photographers on a global scale, creating one of the most ambitious and comprehensive competitions in the photography world today.
