Anita Cruz-Eberhard (BFA 2007 Photography) has been awarded second place in the Nature : Flowers Pro division of this year’s International Photography Awards (IPA). In her Digital Ikebanas series, Cruz-Eberhard juxtaposes the artifice of flower arranging with the biological study of plants. The IPA aims to discover new and emerging talent as well as help promote photography appreciation in a wide variety of contexts.
Cruz-Eberhard is also a finalist in the annual 5th International Festimage, held in Chaves, Portugal, for the same series of work.
