Not Hanging in the Louvre Just Yet, But Close

I am thrilled to say that a piece I did earlier this year was shown at the Lourve this month. Though I have pieces in private collections in Paris, Munich and England, this is a thrill beyond what I envisioned when I started my art journey in late 2008. Here is the piece that made the cut :)  Below is the official letter of recognition.

Photography holds power. The act of taking a photo acts as a historical marker and a capture of time. Just as archaeologists offer hypotheses about ancient societies based on cave paintings, historians of the future will base their conjectures about us on the photography that is happening at this very moment, including yours.

As technology makes our world more interconnected, the act of creation has become a universal language and a vital conversation. Your photography, represented at the Fifth Annual Exposure Award reception is a thrilling contribution to that dialogue.

It's been an honor to have your work included. Thank you for sharing your photography with us and with the world.

Sincerely,
William Etundi Jr. Signature
