It's a dream of a lifetime for Michael Tracey, an American photographer living in Asheville NC:
If his project titled Breach The Wall is approved, he could win $50K to go into the world and produce a photo book. The contest joins his professional skills with his political passion, to bridge gaps and break down barriers between various groups of people.
"We have been building walls for as long as we could pile rock on rock, to separate ourselves from our neighbours. All these barriers fail. I will photograph these attempts at separation and how as human beings, not nations, we overcome", Michael Tracey writes.
