Jeffrey Wolin took the Indiana neighborhood of Pigeon Hill and turned it inside out for all to see.

Others have been viewed by those who critics say could make peace a reality. The majority of photographs remain hidden in plain sight—available if we want them, avoidable if we don’t.
Yesterday we featured the First Place Winner of the 2017 All About Photo Awards. Today we celebrate the other winners with an eye towards what it takes for a single image to catch the eye of jurors.
