An amateur photographer, local author Tom Jordan says he just wants to be in the team picture when it comes to international competitions. Two of his books, “Barns of Door County” and “Door County: The Places and Faces. All Four Seasons” were named finalists for best photography in the 2020 International Book Awards. Jordan was the only amateur among the five other finalists that were picked from the photography category. Over 2,000 entries from around the world were included in the contest. Jordan gives all the credit to Door County.
He is still taking pictures when possible, but Jordan says the pandemic has slowed down the progress of other projects, including future installments of Secret Treasures of Door County.
