The four finalists for the 2013 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, which comes with a 30,000 pound (about $48,000 US) award, have been announced. They are: Mishka Henner, Cristina de Middel, Chris Killip and the duo of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin. The prize honors a contemporary photographer who has made a significant contribution to the medium of photography through an exhibition or publication. The shortlisted photographers will be exhibited in April at The Photographers Gallery in London.
This year the prize stirred controversy when it was awarded to John Stezaker, a veteran collage artist who does not take his own photos. This year’s finalists also includes artists who use photographs they don’t actually shoot with a camera.
The shortlisted artists were nominated by a group of over 100 photography industry leaders. The winner will be chosen by a six-person jury.
