What the judges said:

"Limiting himself to using only black and white, this artist manages to capture both the attitude and character of a young woman who has had a few knocks but is making her comeback. Her direct gaze and strong physical presence engage the viewer defiantly, and she is instantly recognizable as a contemporary identity".
