Independent photographer Sean Cayton won first place in the prestigious 59th Picture of the Year International photo competition for this photograph of siblings who shared a tent at a homeless camp along Highway 24 just outside the Colorado Springs city limits. The photo competition, one of the oldest in the world, is sponsored by the Missouri School of Journalism and Cayton won in the newspaper division portrait category. The black-and-white sepia-toned image was made with a 1940s-style Argus rangefinder camera that had been a gift from his godparents.

"Everything's manual with this camera; there are no overdrives or failsafes. You just have to be aware of the moment that it happens," Cayton says. "It was a powerful photo because of the emotion of the woman and man. They made contact with the camera and they made contact with me."
