Christopher Capozziello has been chosen as this year’s winner of the Berenice Abbott award for emerging photographers. This was an international competition juried by David Fahey of Fahey/Klein Gallery

Berenice Abbott was a photographer of great accomplishment. She began her career as an assistant to Man Ray and became known mostly for her documentary work of New York City in the 1930s. Berenice was also a portrait photographer, an educator, an inventor, and a writer. She believed that all photographers should have personal projects that they are passionate about, no matter what the subject matter. This award was created by Julia Dean to honor her teacher and friend.
