All the photos that won first place for the Picture of the Year competition under the Multimedia division have several things in common.  All of the pictures lead the viewer to wonder about the subject photographed.  The first place finisher in the category of series or special section – newspaper editing included a few series of photographs.  The series headlined “A House On Hold” conveys an emotion every picture.  The viewer wants to know the story behind it.  Through the series of photos, the viewer can guess what is happening prior to even reading the captions or supplementing article. In this series, a viewer can infer that a husband and wife are putting their family and new born son on hold as the husband leaves for the military.  That is the power available with photography, the power to self-interpret.
