Southeast – September 2016 – Photo Story/Essay

Judges Comments

This category was thin though two photo series stood out. The first place photo series was successful because the photographer covered multiple angles of a disaster from preparation to the aftermath with clean and compelling images. The second place series was awarded because the photographer was able to gain the trust of their subject and capture intimate moments that allowed the viewer to connect with the subject, though the judges felt the series lacked a defined ending.
