Honorable Runner-Up: Brandon Adams
Photo: Playing in the Fire Hydrant
Theme: U.S. Urban Beauty
Through a year of service in Chicago, Krista Colleague Brandon Adams caught some great photos and video—while doing video production with youth in school. The joy of of these kids on a warm Chicago evening is contagious!
Honorable Runner-Up: Chris Heinrich
Photo: Kids in African Dunes
Chris is a talented photographer. We're grateful for the way he documented his service alongside his now wife Demetra Davis (now Heinrich) '09, with International Humanity Foundation in Nakuru, Kenya. We were able to use this image as the header photo for Dr. Moses Pulei's article.
Honorable Runner-Up: Joe Tobiason
Photo: Bridge in Peru
Theme: Bridge CROSSING
His photo of a bridge in Peru shows that "bridge crossing" can be precarious, raw work. He sent a number of great entries, we're excited for his keen & talented eye. More about Joe
Grand Prize Winner: Abdul Aziz
Photo: "Big Queen" of the Cheyenne Hunters on St. Josephs Night 2010
Theme: JOY DANCE
We were connected to this photo through Krista Colleague Pilar Ruiz, who served in New Orleans in 2007.
This photo is full of life and energy. The story of the Mardi Gras Indians is fascinating, and captures the essence of our theme, Joy Dance. Val and Kayla articulate this story in the editors' note.
We hope the Big Queen's joy dance image will resonate with you, and everyone else who touches the journal, about the powerful struggle of defiantly sustaining joy in the midst of hardship.
Again, a HUGE thank you to all who submitted photos. We look forward to sharing more of the journal with you in the coming weeks!
