"To what extent can narrative strength arise out of a series of images and evoke emotions in viewers?" As Garry Winogrand ironically stated, no single photograph has any narrative ability, it just displays a subject captured by a camera; and so we challenged photographers around the world to show what narrative strength they could unleash in a photographic story built up of a series of images. In this yearbook, we are proud to present the six stories that succeeded best, according to our five expert jury members. These six stories made their creators the winners of the Viewbook PhotoStory 2010 Jury Prizes.
Ivan and the Moon by Daria Tuminas All That You Leave by Luis Lazo Exodus by Vincent Elkaim In Ramallah I Can Breathe by Guy Martin A Portrait of America Left Behind by Brandon Schulman Fatalistic Tendency by Tushikur Rahman
