From the Nominator
Service is a big part of a Singapore American School education. This series of photos captures the spirit of service as students travel across the globe as part of their Interim Semester experience, serving communities in a variety of ways. In these series, students are in a rural village in Bhutan, where they offer vocational training in English, distribute learning resources, and spend time with children teaching them a variety of things.
From the Judges
Technically adept, emotionally potent photo-journalist series of people in environment. This series got our attention for its original approach to documentary photography. The body of work is precise in its execution, close to the subject matter, uniform in its style, and coherent in the delivery of information about the program. The photographer is present in the images where it is required and distant where is pertinent.
