Sense of Sight Story: Child in China
In search of stories and images for the "Vision" assignment, McNally literally traveled around the world. This quiet image of a young girl who suffered from a "lazy eye" condition was made in Xining Shi in China after she was operated on by surgeons from Project Orbis, a flying eye hospital.

"I made the shot the morning following surgery when she was looking out that window for the first time with her repaired eyes," he recalls. "I really pushed to use this image as a closing image, because I felt it had some hope to it."
