I'm interested in seeing how people tell or relate old stories in a new and more contemporary way. If some issues never disappear, we have to re-interpret how we tell them so people will pay attention and not feel as though they are seeing the same photos again and again. If our photos are to do their jobs, they have to look at the old world in a new way. Margaret Steber, Judge
