    “What we are…”, by Lee Jeffries (UK)

    Lee JeffriesThe overall winner of this year’s competition was Lee Jeffries, a Manchester-based amateur photographer who submitted an image of a homeless man called “What we are…”

    “I’m incredibly honoured and surprised as the kind of shots I take don’t usually win competitions,” said Lee.

    “I took this shot last November – I was walking around Manchester when I noticed something about this guy’s eyes. There was something wrong with them, obviously, but there was a quality about them too… I try to get an almost religious feel to my shots and I think it comes through in this image, with the way the light falls on his face. Anyway, winning this prize is a huge honour.”
