1st Place Photo Essay Winner

In 1991, there were 37,213 people living in Srebrenica, of which roughly 75% were Bosnian Muslims & 25% Serbs. During the civil war in Bosnia & Herzegovina (1992-1995) the city became a UN-supervised security zone that was supposed to shelter thousands of Muslims from surrounding areas controlled by Bosnian Serbs.

The Stata Center, designed by Frank Gehry, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, is seemingly alive. The reflective & angular elements of this structure are simultaneously sharp, definitive, & convoluted, & thus the building’s image can change moment-to-moment.

3rd Place Photo Essay Winner

My Grandma had a long battle dealing with her burnt skin & stroke which made her wheelchair-bound for as long as I can remember. She was trying to save her own house from a fire in Singapore, that lead to her condition. It is typical of her, the bold and irrational woman of the household, she was the alpha female.
