Pieter Hugo, Yakubu Al Hasan, Agbogbloshie Market, Accra, Ghana, 2009
Just as the winner of the 2011 Turner Prize (Martin Boyce) has been announced (see below), the shortlist for the 2012 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize has been made public. This prize lacks the visibility of the Turner but has been the subject of some local debate (see below). The shortlisted photographers are: Pieter Hugo, Rinko Kawauchi, John Stezaker and Christopher Williams. Read comment by Sean O'Hagan.
Examples of their work are shown below. NB these images are selected from their oeuvres as a whole and are not necesarilly representative of the work for which they have been shortlisted. An exhibition of work by the selected photographers will be at the Photographers' Gallery next summer.
