"It is with great pleasure....."

Wow. I made the final selction of fifteen photogs. That's some pretty impressive company. This was in my inbox last night.

"Dear Shawn,

It is with great pleasure that the Pause, to Begin team congratulates
you on your acceptance to participate in the inaugural year of our
project. Your portfolio was selected from an enormous number of
applications from all over the globe. We commend you for your
photographic vision and creativity!

In the coming months your work will be exhibited in our online
gallery, in an exhibition, and in a limited edition hard bound book
published by Booksmart Studio in Rochester, NY. Additionally, you
will be featured in a Pause, to Begin documentary created by
international filmmaker Bruno Toré.

In the next week we will be contacting you to schedule a time and date
when we can come meet you in order to learn more about your work. We
ask that you please begin to look ahead to the month of May so that
you will have a sense of what days you will be available.

Again, congratulations. We look forward to meeting you soon.


Ethan and David"
