Nikon-Walkley Press Photo of the Year

2014 Nikon-Walkley Photographic Awards Winner: Andrew Quilty, Time LightBox, “Baby Burn Victim in Boost HospitalWinner: Andrew Quilty, Time LightBox, “Baby Burn Victim in Boost Hospital” 

 

A baby girl lies in an observation room after suffering burns from an oil heater at home at the MSF administered Boost Hospital in the capital of Helmand Province, Lashkar Gah, Afghanistan.

Judges comments: “The judges felt Andrew Quilty’s image was the absolute stand-out. He has captured an emotively powerful and striking image that allows the viewer to gauge instantly the full magnitude of the little girl’s injuries. That her burns are the result of a domestic accident and not military conflict increases the surrealist impact – almost that of a fine art picture.”

Andrew will receive the prize of $5,000 worth of Nikon equipment.
