From the Judges' Report
Beautiful, technically perfect photographs that evoke the individuality and personality of each subject through thoughtfully conceptualized poses, props and expressions. There is an intensity and authenticity about the expression and gaze of each subject that establishes an emotional connection with the viewer. The relationship to the publication and institution is clear. The technical details -- tones, framing, negative space -- are consistent across all images, making this feel like a cohesive set. Proofs submitted were high quality.
