So excited to hear that one of my all-time favourite photographic artists, Lorna Simpson, has been nominated for the prestigious 2014 Deutsche Borse Photography Prize. Simpson uses various mediums (photography, writing, video) to explore gender & race, with a particular emphasis on African-American women.

Simpson’s retrospective at Paris’s Jeu de Paume is up against the photobook Autorretrato/Self-Portrait by Alberto García-Alix, Jochen Lempert’s Hamburger Kuntshalle show and probably the most well-known out of the 4 nominations,  Richard Mosse’s The Enclave. Mosse, who represented the Republic of Ireland at this year’s Venice Bienalle, used infrared film to document rebel leaders in eastern Congo.
