In the photograph "Insight," the eye of graduate student Trinity Kai peers from a bundle of fabric, looking straight at the viewer. That photo won her the $20,000 grand prize from the VSA Emerging Young Artists Competition devoted to people with disabilities.
"Insight" will travel for a year across the country as part of the exhibition "Electrify!" sponsored by the nonprofit organization VSA. Kai also participated in an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., filled with educational seminars and events.
Kai, who was born with oculocutaneous albinism and is legally blind, shoots on a 4x5 Sinar monorail camera that she likes for its craftsmanship.
