In a statement, juror Dr. Tobias Bezzola, Director of Folkwang Museum in Essen, Germany, said that, in the winning books, “the content and the form are perfectly balanced; they are each uniquely crafted, elevate both books to the level of art objects—objects that reinforce and mirror the content that each contains.”

The jury also awarded a special recognition to War/Photography: Images of Armed Conflict and Its Aftermath (Museum of Fine Arts Houston/Yale University Press, Hew Haven), the catalogue for the exhibition of the same name.

The jury also included photographer and critic Gerry Badger, Dr. Harald Falckenberg of Sammlung Falckenberg / Deichtorhallen Hamburg; Thyago Nogueira, Contemporary Photography Coordinator / ZUM Magazine Editor, Instituto Moreira Salles (Rio de Janeiro); and Maia-Mari Sutnik, Photography and Special Projects Curator of Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto).
