Book Award

Pictures of the Year International (POYi) AND The Professional Lucie Awards named Colin Finlay’s book Testify as Best Book of the Year for 2006. Finlay’s photographs tell the stories of human suffering in such areas as Sudan, Belfast, Haiti, Rwanda, Romania, and Cairo.

Erika Gentry served as Project Director to the three year making of the book. “It was rewarding working with a photographer (Finlay) who was so driven to get his work seen…it was challenging to help make photo edit decisions, drive home conceptual elements and to push the author to think “outside the traditional box” when it came to creating the text. Aside from the visual design of the book, I was able to touch and contribute to every aspect. “
