Wins the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011.


Film’s not dead are very pleased to announce that the US Magnum photographer Jim Goldberg has won the 15th Photography Prize Deutsche Börse 2011, which is organised by The Photographers’ Gallery in London. Miranda Sawyer (a broadcaster and critic) presented the £30,000 award at Ambika P3 ceremony at the University of Westminster, where the exhibition was held this year.

Every year, the award goes to a photographer that has made “the most significant contribution, in exhibition or publication format, to the medium of photography in Europe” over the past 12 months. Goldberg’s exhibition Open See was nominated, which went on show last year at The Photographers’ Gallery. He came ahead of three other photographers and artists – Thomas Demand, Roe Ethridge and Elad Lassry.

Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, Brett Rogers comments: “Due to the breadth of the Award criteria, the jury felt that any one of the four nominees could have been the winner. They however awarded the Prize to Jim Goldberg for Open See, acclaiming its timely and inventive approach to documentary practice, at the heart of which lies for him co-authorship, a form of creative collaboration allowing these individuals to tell their own stories.”

Julia Taeschner, head of corporate responsibility for Deutsche Börse, “the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize has once again succeeded in bringing together the most important and interesting representatives of the European photographic scene.” The exhibition is on show until 01 May and it will then go on to Berlin from the 12th of May for six weeks.
