Deutsche Borse Photography Prize 2010 at the Photographers Gallery

Sophie Ristelhueber (b.1949, France) is nominated for her retrospective, Sophie Ristelhueber at the Jeu de Paume, Paris. Ristelhueber’s work avoids traditional photographic genres and unsentimentally shows the scars and traces we leave behind, addressing the essence of our human existence.

LONDON.- Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie
Ristelhueber and Donovan Wylie have been nominated for the Deutsche Börse
Photography Prize 2010. The selection this year again highlights the diversity
of contemporary photography, incorporating both conceptual practice as well as
approaches which fall within a more conventional photographic vein. The Deutsche
Börse Photography Prize 2010 is presented by The Photographers’ Gallery, London.
The annual award of £30,000 rewards a living photographer of any
nationality, who has made the most significant contribution, in exhibition or
publication format, to the medium of photography in Europe between October 1,
2008 and September 30, 2009. The winner will be announced at a special ceremony
at The Photographers’ Gallery on March 17, 2010.
