Time Out says
This celebrated annual photographic award exhibition is back with four new nominations who are all worthy of the £30,000 prize, but who will take home the coveted prize.
Richard Mosse's visually and politically charged depiction of a turbulent Congo shot using military surveillance film was certainly a stand out at the 2013 Venice Biennale. Spaniard Alberto García-Alix presents his stark black and white self-portraits that span Franco’s dictatorship in the ‘70s to the present day, reflecting upon personal experiences. While the scientific approach of the originally trained biologist, Jochen Lempert offers studies of humans and the natural world, the American multi-media artist Lorna Simpson jazzes up the selection with her performative explorations of gender, culture and histories.
