How is this year’s selection within the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize reflective of the current state of photography?18 Comments »
The work on show for this year’s Prize exhibition addresses some specific topics and themes. In particular there are personal reflections on ‘home’, the power and presence of the built environment, social observation and conflict-scarred landscapes. The scale of work in the show ranges from 15 x 17.5 cm to 2.8 x 1.6 metres in size. There is tenderness, nostalgia and humour, as well as detached documentary. There is black and white as well as colour work, analogue and digitally-produced work. But do these topics and formats reflect the kind of photography being produced more generally? Have your say.
