Denis Roussel Fellowship 2022


Denis Roussel, 41, was a talented and dedicated photographer who was beloved by his family, friends, and the photography community. Denis was lost to bile duct cancer on July 12, 2017.

This annual award honors Roussel’s memory and legacy. Denis inspired many to take risks in their work, step outside the boundaries of traditional images, and realize the magic of photography.

The fellowship is to nurture artists in their artistic journey and is entirely funded by Denis’s family and friends.

This fellowship is tailored to help the selected artist reach the next level in their artistic path.
