  • Unflinching Photojournalism from Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 – Feature Shoot

    Unflinching Photojournalism from Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020
    In his natural rainforest habitat, this young macaque would have lived in a large group with other animals. By the time the photojournalist and wildlife trade consultant Paul Hilton found him, he was alone, tied to a cage at an animal market in Indonesia. His parents would have been killed, and after this photo was made, the orphaned animal would have been sold, perhaps as a pet, to a zoo, to be eaten, or to be used in biomedical research.

  • Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2020 | False signals and white regimes: an award in need of decolonisation

    Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2020
    What this amounts to is curatorial malpractice on the one hand, and capitalist oppression on the other – a form of reproducing and perpetuating racial inequality, both in material and ideological terms. A quick, top-level calculation of the monies awarded to just the winners alone (these figures exclude the smaller sums given to runners up) shows that a total of £485,000 has been awarded to white artists (82%), in comparison to £105,000 awarded to artists of colour (18%)  – a wildly unequal distribution. Not only this, but it subsequently impacts on the discrepancies in levels of press coverage received, as well as interest from galleries, museums and collectors with implications for their markets and price points of artworks. Clearly no honest observer can say that such devaluation, in every sense of the word, isn’t a problem. And it’s a white problem that needs to be urgently addressed going forward.
