"At the Cuzco Orphanage"
By Hanna Oberman
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.
