 Chi Yin was honored for her achievements in photography and passion for social justice. Her World Plus writes in the award announcement, “What Chi Yin has done with this fascination with the world has been extraordinary, a transmogrification that’s perhaps the ultimate distillation of photography as art: “Today, I am still often awed and excited by what taking a picture really is: capturing that magical instant where time, light and human life intersect.”
