Sylvia Plachy - Adrien Brody - LUCIE AWARDS - FULL CLIP 2004. Lucie Foundation WIPI was the opening presentation. Douglas Kirkland introduces Hossein Farmani, and on we go. In 2004, images had to be very small online.. so it's fun looking back at the WIPI history and seeing how much we've grown and who are some of the photographers over the years that stayed with WIPI. .
