The Photographers Gallery – Afronauts (Deutsche Börse Photography Prize)

Drawing, Photography

On Wednesday the 8th of May, I went up to London with my foundation art course for the day and a few of us decided to go to the photographers gallery and see Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2013. If you haven’t been to the photographers gallery I recommend you do, it has great exhibition space, a nice cafe and a wonderful bookshop full of all sorts of photography stuff from film cameras to reasonably priced and well printed books.

My favourite work showcased in the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize was the work of Cristina De Middel. She is a Spanish artist that has been nominated for her first book The Afronauts. It was really interesting to see her work in a photography prize because some of her work isn’t so much photography as it is drawing.

I really enjoyed the exhibition and recommend you go and see it if you go up to London soon. The other 3 photographers are also great but I just though Christina De Middel’s work was funny, interesting and aesthetically pleasing (plus I love Sci Fi). If you want to know any more about the show or the work, follow the links provided and thanks for reading.
