The four finalists for the 2014 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize, which comes with a 30,000 pound (about $48,000 US) award, were announced yesterday. The prize, one of the biggest in the photography world, 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 spring 2014 at The Photographers Gallery in London.

The four nominees on the shortlist are:

Albert Garcia-Alix (born in Spain), for his book “Autorretrato/Self-portrait,” published by La Fabrica Editorial (2013).

Jochen Lempert (born in Germany), for his eponymous exhibition “Jochen Lempert” at Hamburger Kunsthalle.

Richard Mosse (born in Ireland), for his multimedia installation “The Enclave” at Venice Biennale, Irish Pavilion.

Lorna Simpson (born in the US), for her retrospective exhibition of photography, video and text at Jeu de Paume in Paris.

The artists are nominated by a panel of over 100 “international experts of photographic art,” Deutsche Borse reports. The jurors who will select the winner are: Kate Bush, Curator; Jitka Hanzlová, Artist; Thomas Seelig, Director/Curator, Fotomuseum Winterthur; and Anne-Marie Beckmann, Curator, Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Germany. Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, is the non-voting Chair.
