Congratulations to Drew Nikonowicz, winner of the 2015 Aperture Portfolio Prize, for his series The World and Others Like It.  The series, in which he employs computer simulations as well as analog processes, focuses on the growing gap between reality and mediated fiction. The only human figure in his photographs of a fictional, possibly extraterrestrial  landscape is an astronaut.
