2012 Deutsche Börse Prize Roundup

 

2012 Deutsche Börse Prize Roundup | American Photo

Earlier this month, John Stezaker of the UK won the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. Some people might be cry foul that he’s not, technically, a “photographer”: Stezaker’s images are collages put together from other photographs. Still, they’re very interesting to look at, and this article in The Telegraph goes a long way towards explaining what Stezaker is all about. Looking at the other finalists for the award gives a nice cross-section about what’s happening in the world of contemporary photography.

About Farah Mahbub

Farah Mahbub was born and brought up in Karachi. She attained her bachelor’s degree in fine art, literature and psychology. Being primarily self-taught, she has been working as a professional photographer since 1988. Her photographic journey has taken its course through exploration of various genres, ranging from fine art, commercial, architectural and landscape photography. However for her, personal self-expression is best conveyed through fine art photography, which she continues to explore and dedicate her abilities to. Working formerly in analogue, her present work now is primarily in the digital format. As a practicing artist, Farah’s work has been exhibited in both local and international exhibitions including the 11th Asian Art Biennale in Bangladesh and the Mohatta Palace Museum in Pakistan. Her work has also been published in multiple books most notably Journeys of the Spirit: Pakistan Art in the New Millenium. Farah joined the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in 1997 as a faculty member, where she has been ever since. Under her tenure, photography has evolved from a single class into an undergraduate minor spanning the Communication Design and Fine Art and Interior Design departments. Farah recently had her fifth solo show "Baraka Silsila-e-Nisbat" with an accompanying monograph. View all posts by Farah Mahbub
