Sherman Ong has won the first Icon de Martell Cordon Bleu award for his photography. He has recently concluded his month-long award-winning exhibition at the Lasalle Institute of Contemporary Arts.

In an interview with TODAY, Sherman told Mayo Martin, “I just work with images, whether they’re moving or still. These can be categories that just limit you.”
