    So, if you read the linked piece, you see that he didn't win the award for this photograph. He won the award for the '12 individual volumes of photographic short stories of life in contemporary USA' of which this photograph was but only one in one of twelve volumes of images.

    But don't let me get in the way of any philistinism.
