Winner and Juror’s Pick (Vince Aletti), Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Work-in-Process Prize

From the series, “Lejos de las Urbes, Cerca de la Tierra," by Elizabeth Moreno.

After moving to the U.S. to study photography, Mexico-based photographer Elizabeth Moreno has spent the past two and a half years documenting her birthplace of La Paz, Baja California Sur. During that time, with help from a Jovenes Creadores 2009-2010 Grant (given by FONCA-CONACULTA), she has been able to document the daily life of the ranchero communities in the area. For her efforts toward this burgeoning project, which is titled “Lejos de las Urbes, Cerca de la Tierra,” Ms. Moreno was recently awarded the 2010 Daylight Magazine / CDS Work-in-Process Prize.
