The Hanover Shots Photography Grant has been awarded by the Sparkassen Hannover Stiftung for the second time. With grant money amounting to 10,000 euros, it was won on this occasion by Göran Gnaudschun (*1971).
Within the framework of the grant, the recipient has to choose to work with a photographic theme related to the city of Hanover. The resulting work will be presented in an exhibition held in spring 2016, at the Galerie für Fotografie (GAF).
The jury of experts was convinced by the concept submitted by Gnaudschun, as much as by his earlier works, including, in particular, his long-term projects such as Alexanderplatz, where, with an open and approachable manner, he portrayed young homeless people, punks, drunks and drug addicts, who, in the eyes of most, live cut off from society.
For Hanover Shots, the photographer wants to take extensive forays into the city. “Göran Gnaudschun is planning a kind of mosaic made up of urban landscapes and portraits, compiled of daily observations and personal experiences, complemented with short texts,” jury member and Managing Director of the Sparkassen Hannover Stiftung, Anja Römisch, explains.
