I love this photo by the photographer Danny Wilcox Frazier. The picture was taken in Skopje, Macedonia, while Frazier was working on a story about an Ethnic Albanian who had traveled back to Kosovo from the United States. He says the photograph "showed the tension of the time - life was returning to normal, but there was still unease resonating in shadows." I love the visual depth of the picture - it's a great example of an image that keeps unfolding, the longer you view it.

Danny's a photojournalist who lives in Iowa City, and has spent years documenting life in rural Iowa. His first book, "Driftless: Photographs from Iowa," will be published this fall, as a result of winning the Center for Documentary Studies/Honickman First Book Prize, juried by Robert Frank. Frank paid what may be the ultimate compliment to Danny's photographs when he said, "Frazier's work will survive."
