title: i don't know who i am, only where i'm from
"I Don't Know Who I Am, Only Where I'm From" is an ongoing documentary project about growing up on a small, windswept island off the west coast of Norway. It's a story about a girl eventually moving farther and farther away from her family, desperate to distance herself from the place where she was born and raised. But it's also a personal journey of coming back, after years of therapy and of living abroad, trying to look at the place with fresh eyes—without repressing the bad memories.

A Honduran toddler cries as she watches her mother being searched by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on June 12, 2018, in McAllen, Texas. They and other asylum seekers were taken into custody after entering the U.S. from Mexico by raft on the Rio Grande. The following week the Trump administration, under pressure from the public and lawmakers, ended its controversial policy separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. Although the child and her mother remained together, they were sent to a series of detention facilities before release, pending a future asylum hearing.

Although African-Americans only make up 14 percent of the U.S. population, they account for a majority (57 percent) of gun homicide victims, according to the CDC. As gun violence continues to unduly affect African-American communities, "Rest in Peace" T-shirts—custom-made memorial T-shirts celebrating the lives of those lost to gun violence—have become a staple of urban life. "Sunrise/Sunset" is a portrait-based project that captures the phenomenon of these shirts through portraits of the loved ones of victims who purchase them.

In 2007, Brazil began pouring money into sports infrastructure in preparation for hosting both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro. Meanwhile, investment in public services such as housing, health and security waned. Concerned with understanding the true cost of bringing major sporting events to cities, Pina offers a portrait of the "wonder city" with all its contrasts and complexities.

This group of women is celebrated as a national treasure, and included on the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage, but the tradition is slowly fading. Efforts by the government and local communities to preserve and promote this ecological and sustainable lifestyle have brought renewed interest from young people disillusioned with urban life and eager to return to their roots.

For "America's Girls," Verbeek photographed a variety of young American women between the ages of 6 and 16. Says Verbeek: "I am interested in adolescence as a fleeting and transitional stage of emotional discovery. Young girls seem to go through an incredibly rapid change in their teens. For many, being in that transitional period is the most difficult period of life."

The edifice provides shelter, security, peace and, at the same time, gives a sense of strength. However, the feeling is just an illusion, and the power—contrary to what those who wield it think—is not given once and for all, but only for a moment. The specter of demise is near, lurking just around the corner, just behind the cold and thick walls of grandiose ideas."

PDN Photographer of the Year Award

Dawoud Bey
This award honors an image-maker who has created an outstanding image or body of work that reflects the year in photography, selected by the editors of PDN. Congratulations to Dawoud Bey, who will receive $5,000 and be profiled in an upcoming issue of PDN. Dawoud Bey began his career as a street photographer in Harlem in 1975 and, in 1979, mounted his first solo show of black-and-white prints, "Harlem, USA," at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Throughout his 40-year career, he's trained his lens on the people he encounters throughout the country, many of whom live in marginalized communities. He probes issues of gentrification, black identity and visibility, adolescence and community in his work, which includes large-scale color photographs. Dawoud Bey: Seeing Deeply (University of Texas Press) is a 400-page book chronicling his lauded career.Bey's work has been shown in exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Barbican Centre in London, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the National Portrait Gallery in London, the Walker Art Center and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others. Bey was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2017 and is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He's taught at Columbia College Chicago since 1998.

PDN Editor's Choice Award

Elinor Carucci
Exceptional work by a winner of the Photo Annual Awards. Congratulations to this year's recipient, Elinor Carucci, who will receive a $2,500 cash award.Israeli-American photographer Elinor Carucci has been lauded for her poignant images which give an empathetic view of the human body and intimate moments of family, including what it means to be a lover or a mother. In many of her series, she unabashedly turns the camera on herself. Her work began in earnest when she moved to New York in 1995. Since then, she's published three monographs and her artwork has been exhibited at the Edwynn Houk gallery, Fifty One Fine Art Gallery, James Hyman, Gagosian Gallery, London, The Museum of Modern Art and The Photographers' Gallery, London. Her work has also been published by The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, New York, W, Aperture and ARTnews, among other publications. In 2001, she was awarded the ICP Infinity Award and in 2010, a Guggenheim Fellowship. She teaches at the graduate program of photography at the School of Visual Arts. Carucci's winning work, published by People, chronicles a day in the life of Karen McIntosh, a woman who is raising her daughter, Aryanna, in the Washington Correction Center for Women, where she is serving time as an inmate McIntosh and her daughter are among the qualifying mother and child duos participating in the Residential Parenting Program. Qualifying inmates can have their babies live with them while they finish their prison sentence.

PDN's Publication Of The Year Award

The New York Times Magazine
Exceptional work by a print or online magazine winner of the Photo Annual Awards. Congratulations to this year's recipient, The New York Times Magazine. First published in 1896, and containing the first photographs ever published in the newspaper, The New York Times Magazine is an award-winning Sunday supplement of The New York Times. Including longer feature articles than are published in the newspaper, the magazine is also known for its superior dedication to photography, with Kathy Ryan at its helm as director of photography. This year's winning submissions include images by Ryan McGinley and Jack Davison, who documented love in New York City over a single day. The magazine sent 23 photographers around the city for one 24-hour period on May 19, 2018. For the cover shoot, the photo department scouted 37 couples to demonstrate their passion by kissing for a photographer. In the end, the images became a split run of 24 covers—the largest in the magazine's history—one for every hour in the day. Photo Annual judges were also impressed by Christopher Payne's photographs of one of America's last pencil factories, and Alex Prager's innovative approach to photographing Maya Rudolph, through a collaboration with her sister, Vanessa Prager, who created a life-size painting of the actress and comedian. Philip Montgomery captured the lava erupting out of Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii in 2018 for the annual Voyages issue, which captures the sights and sounds of some of the world's most interesting places. Montgomery also shot the "Great Performers: Let's Dance" series, in which Times critics A.O. Scott and Wesley Morris picked the 12 best actors in the year's films, and Justin Peck choreographed them in ballets based on everyday movements. The magazine also published Alec Soth's photograph of an opioid-addicted mother and her child, and Mark Peterson's iconic image of members of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group, who held a lighting ceremony in Georgia on April 21, 2018.

The Marty Forscher Fellowship Fund

is sponsored by Parsons School of Design and PDN. The awards recognize one professional and one student who have made outstanding achievements in humanistic photography. The awards are given in memory of the sought-after camera-repair technician who helped equip Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Mary Ellen Mark, Joel Meyerowitz and many other photographers.

Congratulations to professional award winner Joao Pina, who will receive $3,500, and student award winner Bing Guan, who will receive $1,500. They were chosen from the 2019 PDN Photo Annual winners by Michelle Bogre, Katherine Pomerantz and Holly Stuart Hughes.
Professional
João Pina
João Pina is a Portuguese-born freelance photographer. In 2005, he graduated from the International Center of Photography's Photojournalism and Documentary Photography program in New York and went on to have his work published in GEO, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Newsweek and TIME, among others. His work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums. 46750 is Pina's third book. It focuses on the urban violence and physical transformation of Rio de Janeiro in anticipation of hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympic games. In 2007, Brazil began pouring investments into sports infrastructure, while minimally funding public services such as housing, health and security. Through photography Pina seeks to answer the question: Why is bankruptcy the price to pay for bringing major sports events to cities? 46750 is a visual account of the city's last decade, and a portrait of the "wonder city," with all its contrasts and complexities.
STUDENT
Bing Guan
An Australian-born, San Diego-based Chinese-American, Bing Guan shows an equal curiosity toward various countercultures and identities—migrants, itinerants, revelers—demonstrating a sense of humanity in his photographic practice. He graduated from the International Center of Photography's Documentary Practice & Visual Journalism program in 2019 and was selected to participate in the Eddie Adams XXXII Workshop. His work has been published by The Intercept and elsewhere. His series "Sin Refugio (No Refuge)" documents Central American migrants, specifically those from the "Northern Triangle"-Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador-and the daily struggles they face in search of a better existence.
