The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013 are:
Cristina de Middel
Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin
The winner will be announced at a special ceremony at The Photographers’ Gallery in London in May 2013. The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize is an annual award of £30,000 rewarding a living photographer, of any nationality, for a specific body of work in an exhibition or publication format, which has significantly contributed to photography in Europe in the current year.
The members of the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013 jury are: Joan Fontcuberta, artist; Andrea Holzherr, Exhibition Manager, Magnum; Karol Hordziej, Artistic Director, Krakow Photomonth; and Anne-Marie Beckmann, Curator, Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Germany. Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, is the non-voting Chair.
Brett Rogers said: “This year’s jury selected four artists whose work represents four distinct and significant positions within contemporary photography: Chris Killip for his singular and timeless vision reinterpreting the possibilities of documentary practice; Broomberg & Chanarin for their surgical examination of images of conflict using Brecht’s War Primer as their source; Mishka Henner for appropriating the archive of Google Street View photographs to examine the landscape of today’s sex workers; and Cristina de Middel’s ‘mockumentary’ on the Zambian space program which confidently blurs the boundaries of fact and fiction in a highly original way.
