I was shocked when I read your bio and your note that you are closing down your studio and not doing photography anymore. Your work is so good; it's a shame to see it stop. But I can imagine what the economy is doing to artists in all mediums. Anyway, congratulations on a stunning finalist, and good luck with whatever other avenues you choose!
