The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation announces the shortlist for their Book Awards championing books in photography and moving image. The Awards recognise practitioners that have made an original and lasting educational, professional, historical and cultural contributions to the fields of photography and moving image books.
This year’s shortlisted works reflect a range of approaches and subject matters encompassing the uses of photography in postwar Japan, the splintered narratives of war and displacement between Europe, Israel/Palestine, and the United States and African American actors in Hollywood in the 1930s . With prize money of £10,000 divided between the Best Photography Book Award and the Best Moving Image Book published each year, the Awards celebrate excellence in photography and moving image publishing and seek to broaden perceptions on the importance of books in both fields.
The shortlisted works were chosen by an international panel of leading photography professionals after an open call for submissions, and will be on display at Photo London, Somerset House from 18 until 21 May 2017. The judging panel includes Martin Barnes (Senior Curator, Photographs, V&A); Vanessa Winship (Photographer); Ben Burbridge (Senior Lecturer, University of Sussex); Larsuhka Ivan-Zadeh (Film Editor, Metro newspaper) and Professor Peter Stanfield (Lecturer in Film, University of Kent and co-di rector of the Centre For the Interdisciplinary Study of Film and the Moving Image.)
The shortlist is on display at Photo London. Siân Davey also as work on display at our booth.
