Critical Mass by Photolucida is a program to promote emerging photographers, in which a select group of 200 finalists "goes on to a jury of approximately 200 of the world's best photography professionals." This year my work, Oceanus, was selected amongst the finalists! And I was given a scholarship to participate in the program together with several other Guatemalan photographers.
"As you may know, as part of Critical Mass, we extend a large handful of scholarships to photographers based in countries that may be flying under the radar, and whose work we think our Critical Mass jurors should see. In past years, scholarships have been given to photographers from Poland, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, and Georgia. This year, we are pleased to offer this opportunity to these select photographers from Guatemala - JJ Estrada & Clara de Tezanos, Daniel Chauche,Jorge Luis Chavarria Aleman, Alejandro Medina, and Bryon Marmol."
