    17-year-old American photographer Torrance Hall was this year's recipient of the Max Mara Young Visionary Award, which includes a prize of $10,000. Hall's work explores the maturity from adolescence into adulthood through portraits of Hall and his friends. This series of photographs offered a calm break from the sensory overload of the Power Ball's other installations.
