Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2010 tours to Frankfurter Kunstverein

Wed, 12th May, 2010

The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2010 tours to Frankfurter Kunstverein, from 13 May 2010 to 25 July 2010.

This year the prize, presented by The Photographers’ Gallery, features the work of Anna Fox who was nominated for her exhibition Cockroach Diary & other stories. The exhibition was initiated by Impressions Gallery and premiered there in 2008 before touring to Winchester Gallery and Ffotogallery in Cardiff.

Curated by Anne McNeill Cockroach Diary & other stories brings together works spanning twenty-five years that convey a compelling sense of both the ordinary and the bizarre in British life, and is the first survey show by Anna Fox, one of the most significant photographers to emerge from the new wave of British colour documentary of the 1980s.

Fox was one of four artists to be shortlisted for the annual award (Anna Fox, Zoe Leonard, Sophie Ristelhueber and Donovan Wylie), which rewards a living photographer of any nationality who has made an outstanding contribution to photography in Europe.
