The jury said about this photo: The shape of the tree, the one chicken up in the branches, the color and light. They all work in its favor. All of this relays the photographer’s reality through subtle symbolism.

Wayan said about her photo

The chickens in the tree are our little investment to earn some money for our daily needs. This place in front of our little house at the beach is a lovely place…If only we could stay at this place... If only we would have a house of stone instead of bamboo which can collapse by strong winds...If only we would have more than one bedroom for the three of us and where the wind and rain stays outside our bedroom...If only we will have the money to continue school to make our ambitions come true.

After reading “The diary of Anne Frank” it is my ambition to be a journalist. So I take this opportunity to tell a piece of my life story. I want to tell the world how it is to be poor. I hope my story will help to get a better live for everyone. I hope that as a journalist I also can earn money and make our dream of our own lovely place come true.
