The Fairfield Arts Center in Connecticut did not have to look hard to find a recipient for their Artist of the Year award. Local educator and artist, Thomas Mezzanotte, earned it with his work and show on the basics of photography.

On October 23, the humble artist was presented with Fairfield's 30th annual award, according to the Stamford Times. A documentary created about his life, titled "Mezzanotte Obscura," was also aired at the ceremony. Created by local film maker, Lori Petchers, the piece has won awards for its glimpse into the life of the Artist of the Year victor.

"It was a great honor, but I also felt like, for a visual artist, it's really about the work and you don't necessarily want the attention focused on you," Mezzanotte told the news source. "It's nice to have the attention, but you want it focused on your work."

Mezzanotte has a strong focus on teaching others about the history of photography in the digital age.

Photography jobs are predicted to grow by 12 percent by 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As more individuals look to study the field, mentors may play a big role in helping amateur photographers bloom into professionals.
