A young Siberian photographer, Evgenia Arbugaeva, who now lives in New York, is the winner of the Lens Culture FotoFest Paris 2010 Blurb Photobook Prize. The prize will enable her to design, print, market and distribute her own photobook with Blurb.com, the online publishing-on-demand photobook company.
In recognition of this award, Lens Culture is pleased to highlight this series she made about reindeer herders from Arbugaeva’s native Siberia.
Arbugaeva, who is a graduate of the International Center of Photography, presented several bodies of work during the Paris portfolio reviews last month. She was thrilled to receive this award, and said that she hopes to create a photobook of all-new work with the prize.
