What Have We Become?

International Photo Awards (IPA), and Prix de Photographie de Paris (PX3), are some of the numerous awards listed under Anthony Kurtz's accomplishments. He is an excellent photojournalist who captures every photo with great emotional power. From traveling to Thailand and India, to documenting anti-war protest in San Francisco and making a statement about mass-consumerism.

In my personal preference, Anthony is very inspirational. The thought of him traveling to distant countries or putting himself in the middle of a riot in order to capture a statement speaks in great volume. I really enjoy his high contrasting photos with deep saturated colors, and the subject matter is very dramatic and thought provoking. He has additional photos on his website which covers anti-war protest, the world tomorrow, India by train, Hip Hop street culture, and more.
