In regards to his award-winning photograph, Zhang disclosed that “I had shot many photos around the swimming pool and found the optimum spot to shoot from in order see the light spraying through the windows. It was a magic moment – one that I have never felt or seen in my career. I stayed in the spot, waited until all students left, then captured the scene in my camera – and in my heart, too.” The photographer managed to have two other projects on the shortlist of the awards, which was only comprised of 20 projects.
