Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2019

The four artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2020 are Mohamed Bourouissa, Anton Kusters, Mark Neville and Clare Strand.

From an experiment with image-making, transmission and interpretation (Strand); to a photographic portrait of a farming community in Brittany (Neville); a conceptual response to violence, trauma and memory (Kusters); and an interrogation of consumerism, trade and disenfranchisement (Bourouissa); the four projects offer very distinctive approaches to the photographic medium whilst demonstrating its ability to accommodate and give form to a diverse range of practice and concerns.

This year's jury are: Martin Barnes, Senior Curator, Photographs, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, United Kingdom; Melanie Manchot, artist and photographer, based in London, United Kingdom; Joachim Naudts, Curator and Editor at FOMU Foto Museum in Antwerp, Belgium; Anne-Marie Beckmann, Director of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, Frankfurt a. M., Germany; and Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers' Gallery as the non-voting chair.

The projects for which the artists were nominated are shown at The Photographers' Gallery from 21 February and will be presented at the Deutsche Börse headquarters in Eschborn/Frankfurt from 25 June to 27 September.
