This year’s shortlist of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize comprises four artists whose courageous projects span from Algeria to China, and cover topics of local as well as global significance.
Poulomi Basu was selected for her uncompromisingly complex depictions of conflict in Central India. Alejandro Cartagena’s entry takes a highly critical look at the repercussions of property ownership and suburban development projects in northern Mexico. Cao Fei was shortlisted for his dystopian multi-media creations, which explore the impact of technology on real-life experiences. Zineb Sedira was chosen for her auto-fictional investigations of memory, culture and belonging.
What all nominees have in common is that they use photography to convey subjective truths, and question political realities. The winner of the £30,000 (€33,500) award will we revealed in spring 2021.
