Aperture Announces 2010 Portfolio Prize Finalists
All of us at Aperture Foundation would like to thank everyone who submitted work to the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize. This year, Aperture’s editorial and limited-edition print departments—five staff members and five work scholars in all—reviewed over nine hundred portfolios. Our challenge was to select one top prize and four honorable mentions from this overwhelming response. Thus, we are pleased to present the following five finalists Kathryn Parker Almanas, Pre-Exisiting Condition; David Favrod, Gaijin; Anne Golaz, The Hunting Game / Chasses; Julian Röder, Lagos Transformation; and Jordan Tate, New Work.
The winner of the Aperture Portfolio Prize will be announced in December 2010, at which time finalists’ portfolios and statements will be presented on-line. An exhibition will be planned in conjunction with the final winner, and take place in spring 2011.
