The contenders this year were:
Paul Graham (b. 1956, UK) nominated for his publication, A Shimmer of Possibility (steidlMACK, October 2007).
Emily Jacir (b.1970, Palestine) nominated for her installation, Material for a Film, presented at the 2007 Venice Biennale (7 June – 21 November 2007).
Tod Papageorge (b.1940, USA) nominated for the exhibition Passing Through Eden - Photographs of Central Park at Michael Hoppen Gallery, London (7 March - 12 April 2008).
Taryn Simon (b.1975, USA) nominated for her exhibition An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar at The Photographers' Gallery, London (13 September -11 November 2007).
I loved Tod Papageorge's for his retro pictures of New York's Central Park (biased given my love for all things New York...) but I also found curiously interesting as it was so fact-based and was verging on education whilst still having mesmerising, beautiful photographs. Stay tuned for the winner on March 25th.
