2008 IPA Discovery of the Year Winner - John Delaney’s First Solo Show
“Golden Eagle Hunters of Mongolia”
February 5-28, 2009. Opening Reception: Feb. 5, 6-8PM
Resource Magazine features John Delaney
New York, NY (February 3, 2009). The Farmani Gallery and The International Photography Awards are proud to present the first solo exhibit from the winner of the 2008 IPA Discovery of the Year competition - John P. Delaney.
As an ongoing media contributor, Resource Magazine will feature Delaney’s award-winning series in its Spring Issue, available April 4, 2009. Resource Magazine is committed to connecting the photo production industry by sharing news, interviews, photographs, events and focusing on subjects geared to this vibrant industry. Farmani Gallery and IPA is delighted to have its participation for this exhibit.
Delaney’s series titled “Golden Eagle Hunters of Mongolia” garnered him one of IPA’s most coveted awards. An esteemed panel of judges chose his work from nearly 22,000 submissions spanning 124 different countries. And although he competed in the non-professional photography category, Delaney is no novice in the world of photography, himself being a Master Printer working closely with such eminent photographers such as Bruce Davidson, Richard Avedon, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz and Irving Penn.
With the “Golden Eagle Hunters of Mongolia” Delaney presents a rich and beautiful collection of portraits and landscapes that capture an intimate glimpse of the ancient way of life for the nomadic Kazakh tribe, who date farther back than the 15th century and are once again in danger of being eradicated. Delaney has painstakingly hand-printed this series of large format black and white prints to convey the pride and nobility of these legendary horsemen and to document the vast beauty of Mongolia. “The nomads warmly welcomed me and to them I am grateful. I am also honored to have observed their way of life in such an intimate and personal manner and hope my images do their traditions justice,” says Mr. Delaney.
The Farmani Gallery is delighted to collaborate with the International Photography Awards and is honored to present this captivating collection of works from photographer and Master Printer John Delaney.
The Farmani Gallery was established in 2003 and our mission is to discover and promote emerging artists among the contemporary photography genre.
