Recently, Lawson was awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, considered to be the most important award devoted to photography, and it is given to an artist who has made the most significant contribution to photography.

There are different types of art designed to do just that, while catering to your different senses and emotions. Music and poetry play to the emotions of the audience while allowing them to create an image in their own minds. Visual art like paintings, sculptures, and movies takes viewers on a journey that they’re able to experience with the creator.
