James Estrin, jury member for the Photographic Museum of Humanity and co-editor of the New York Times Lens Blog said the following about the winning project:

“Blue Sky Days is one of the most important photo essays done in the last few years. It tackles issues that are very difficult to photograph but central to modern existence – privacy, government intrusion and modern antiseptic warfare.”
