The Lucie Awards are the annual awards honoring exceptional achievement in photography. Fortunately, I had the pleasure of attending the event, which was held at Carnegie Hall. Among many honorees, this year, two Chicagoans were honored - Victor Skrebneski and John H White. However the highlight of the evening was witnessing Chinese Li Zhensheng accepting his award for Outstanding Achievement in Documentary Photography, and photographing the audience with his camera phone while his translator stood at the podium. Quite the evening! Congratulations to all of the honorees and winners!
