Brian Smith Wins PDN The Curator Award Haiti

PDN-Curator-AwardsEach year, PDN searches for outstanding and undiscovered fine-art photography through their annual competition The Curator. I’m deeply honored to win PDN’s The Curator Award for Fine Art Photography of Urban Scenes by Photo District News for my series of photographs from Haiti.

This is the third major photography award for the series which earlier this year won in the PDN Annual Awards 2014 and was chosen for American Photography 30.

The photographs were part of a series that I shot last fall when I was given a chance to revisit my roots as a photojournalist, returning to Haiti to capture images of life in Port-au-Prince using the Sony A7R camera. Since my days as a photographer at the Miami Herald, I’ve always felt a special affinity for the Haitian people. I hope these images capture the enduring spirit of the Haitian people, the beauty that exists in the chaos, and my wishes for a better tomorrow.
