Honorees at the October 19 gala will include legendary fashion photographer and art director Jean-Paul Goude, photojournalist Gilles Peress, and the multi-talented Mark Seliger, who will be recognized for his achievement in portraiture. A lifetime achievement award wil be presented to Turkish photographer Ara Guler, and the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund will be honored with the spotlight award for its significant impact on the landscape of photography.
