"At the Cuzco Orphanage"

By Hanna Oberman

Judge's Comment:

This judge, for one, particularly enjoyed the black and white images in the youth category this year. Hanna Oberman took second place for her image "At the Cuzco Orphanage," a portrait of a boy whose eyes meet the camera with a direct and open gaze. He seems about to speak, and this photograph gives us a chance to get to know him, even if we can't hear his words.
