Today is the last day of an exhibition presented by James Hyman Photography of recent works by the six successful applicants for the 2010 National Media Museum Photography Awards. Selected from more than 200 applicants, these six artists were judged to reflect the significant range and diversity of photographic practice visible in the UK today.
The 2010 awardees whose work will be exhibited at James Hyman Photography are:
Jim Cooke, who will receive funding to complete his series showing marginal plants that line the river Thames. Anna Fox, whose award will go towards a book and exhibition of her latest project documenting the contemporary state of a long-standing British tradition of holiday camps at Butlins.
Stuart Griffiths, whose project The Northern Ireland Archive documents an autobiographical response to the landscape of Northern Ireland and its post-conflict condition. Clarita Lulic, awarded to produce her autobiographical series documenting a seven-month tour as a cruise ship photographer.
Regine Petersen, whose series Find a Falling Star is an ongoing historical and topographical view of meteorites. Vanessa Winship, whose work has received international recognition for its sensitive and resonating portraits exploring Georgian identities.
The award is sponsored by Michael G Wilson (Chairman of the Trustees of the National Media Museum), Zelda Cheatle (Curator and Director of the Tosca Fund Photography Collection), Simon Crocker (Chairman of The John Kobal Foundation), Pierre Brahm (Chairman of the BRAHM and Henry & James Property Group), and James Hyman (James Hyman Photography, London), all of whom also sit on the award judging panel.
