Priscilla Falcón Moeller. Orlando, Cuba (first winner)
I took this photo in Regla, a town around Havana, Cuba. My project, Teddy Bear Dream, was ending, and I found a community I felt comfortable at home. We spent hours in a local park. One of those days, I saw Orlando lying on a carousel. His gaze penetrated my heart. I knelt and took his portrait. He did not move after taking this photo, and I did not say anything; he was impressive.
