Life of Brian

Filed under: artists — alecsothblog @ 11:26 am


Congratulations to the two Midwestern Brian’s selected for this years PDN 30. My former student and current printer Brian Lesteberg was recognized for his fantastic pictures from North Dakota. And buddy Brian Ulrich received the PDN 30-sixish for, well, you all know Brian. Briagraphy rules!


  1. […] Alec stepped up to congratulate not one, but two Brians on their inclusion in this year’s PDN30. I offer my congratulations too! I love the PDN30 – it’s how I found Ben Donaldson initially, and many of the Hot Shots were PDN30 picks in the past as well. […]

  5. Got the PDN30 in hand, great 30! Especially the 2 Brians, who one is my old classmate and another is my new friend. Midwestern photographers are awesome!

  6. Brians rule. I’m also Brian, and so’s my wife.

    Only one of the PDN 30 seems to have not studied photography, art, or design. I wonder what part education plays in the selection process.
