Michael Warren and Stephen Wilkes in Communication Arts
Michael Warren and Stephen Wilkes win in Communication Arts 53rd Photography Annual. Both photographers were awarded prizes in the Editorial category. Only 125 winners were selected from nearly 5,000 entries. The publication's annual selects the best photography from the past year in categories such as Advertising, Editorial, Self-Promotion, and Institutional.
Warren's photograph is of Jim Maki for the Boston Magazine article "Top Doctors." Maki, a Vietnam Vet, is the second person in the United States to receive a partial face transplant. His injury was the result of blacking out and falling on to the third rail of the subway.
Wilkes's winning photograph was of former I.M.F. chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn's house arrest for the Vanity Fair article "Pepe le Perp." The image contrasts the luxuriousness of the townhouse with the fact that Strauss-Kahn was under house arrest and intense media scrutiny.
The 53rd Photography Annual is in Communication Arts's July/August 2012 issue, on newsstands now.
