Natalia Engelhardt is a Russian photographer based in New York City. Her photographs are often portraits of strangers as well as people with whom she has a close relationship. She describes her award-winning photograph in her artist statement:

Sasha, Moscow 2007 is a photograph of a seventeen year old girl I had met on the street just minutes before this picture was taken. She was sitting on a bench, reading a book, her viola lying next to her. This photo is part of a series of portraits of kids that I met on the boulevard in central Moscow, the place that my friends and I had frequented growing up. I felt that this bit of personal history would help me make photographs of strangers more intimate.
