‘Highly Recommended’ awarded - plus
one year free membership granted...

In the recently juried London-Photographic-Awards competition titled My Best Shot, Clay Bodvin’s single entry - the atmospheric UrbanScape-16 - won a Gold LPA Online Portfolio as well as free membership in the newly launched London Photographic Association, both for one year.

This turns out to be the first public offering of the artist’s pure photography and marks a new direction which will see the integration of more photographic imagery into Clay’s ongoing investigation of the still life art form.
