The same image won third prize in The Independent Photographer’s “Visual Storytelling” competition. In the jury’s assessment, they said: “Simon Móricz-Sabján’s thoroughly arresting and impeccably-framed image brilliantly demonstrates the medium’s communicative capabilities. Strikingly forthright, yet imbued with a surreal quality, it imparts the essence of the scene perfectly, yet simultaneously resonates far beyond the sum of its parts, serving as a profoundly somber and familiar symbol of the ongoing global health crisis.”
