With her nose inches from the paper, Allison Keagy, 16, draws a cartoon hamburger while at her Lodi home on March 21. Keagy suffers from optic nerve coloboma, a defect that severely restricts her vision. (Camera: Nikon D3s. Lens: Nikkor 17-35mm at 35mm. Exposure: 1/15th sec. at f/2.8. ISO: 800)
Photographer’s note: This was one of my favorite stories and photo series of the year. Watching Allison create works of art while only being able to see a few inches beyond her nose was incredible. I like this photo because it demonstrates how she goes about drawing while so close to the paper, and her concentration.
