Graphis, The International Journal of Visual Communication, was first published in 1944 by Dr. Walter Amstutz and Walter Herdeg in Zurich, Switzerland. Graphis presented the work of fine artists and illustrators, as well as highlighting the formative years of graphic design as we know it today. Advertising and photography were also featured, and Amstutz selectively chose what he felt to be the best talent of the time, with the Graphis Annual introduced in 1952. My work was featured first time in Graphis Photo Annual in 2000 and I have been lucky to win few more times after that. This year my Circus series and two individual images from the same series were awarded among the San Diego NightTime Zoo Elephant image. Thank you Graphis.
