Faces of Hunger- 1st Place Image

Professional Winner: Joe Morahan, Denver. His story:

Charles Alcott is the face of hunger but also heroism. He sits on the bank of Cherry Creek near Speer Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue. To the right of the photo is where Alcott risked his life in April by diving into the icy, raging water and saving a man who slipped on the bank of the creek and fell in. A witness called 911, and Alcott dragged the victim ashore as rescue crews arrived. Alcott is a Native American from the Crazy Horse People and is a mix between Oglala and DinĂ©. His family still lives on a reservation, but he has been living near this path for years and calls the Denver parks his home.  (denver magazine)
