"FOCUS photo l.a. has been an incredible ride. Between seeing my piece exhibited at the fair to working with FOCUS photo l.a. and Fine Art Solutions in LA and Switzerland, I couldn't have been more grateful and exhilarated by the experience. All I can suggest for future applicants is to just apply! There's no other award available like this nor a community of people that are as supportive and invested in young artists' careers."
