Selections from my portfolio, "Fair Play", a series depicting country fairs, carnivals and amusement parks, have been posted on the Leica camera website. The pictures are contenders for the 2011 Oskar Barnack Award. An international jury awards the Leica Oskar Barnack Award to photographers whose unerring powers of observation capture and express the relationship between man and the environment in the most graphic form in a sequence. Entry submissions must be a self-contained series of images in which the photographer perceives and documents the interaction between man and the environment with acute vision and contemporary visual style – creative, groundbreaking and unintrusive. All photo series submitted will be displayed in a special online gallery in the "Contest" section. The award is named after photographic pioneer Oskar Barnack (1879–1936), the inventor of the Leica.
