In a press release announcing plans surrounding its 100th anniversary, Nikon said it would curate a list of rising stars in photography. The #Nikon100 List will identify photographers on Instagram that are “creating inspiring work and telling amazing stories.”

One new photographer will be highlighted each day throughout the 100-day campaign, which will post on Nikon’s Instagram channel. The program launched in October 2017.

Kenyon’s feature began this week with three selected works, including, “Stargazer,” a photograph that was her very first post to Instagram in July 2017. The image of her dog, Tuffy, gazing up at the Milky Way over Metate Arch in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument won her the Royce Bair Nightscaper Photo Award.
