When Dutch photographer Dana Lixenberg first started her photo series on a Los Angeles housing estate, the area was on edge after the Rodney King riots. “The media focused on the Bloods and Crips [gangs], and would come in a van, shoot an item, and leave,” she says. “I felt photography was a way to step into the real scenario.” This was a radical and necessary approach for an area that, on film, was seen by the rest of America through a frantic helicopter camera. Two decades later, her work is being recognised with the prestigious Deutsche Börse Photography prize 📷

Dana Lixenberg has won the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize for 2017 for her incredible series Imperial Courts 1993-2015, a project which began in the aftermath of the LA riots. A book of the series was published by Roma Publications (pictured) and is in store and online now, alongside the prize catalogue, which features the work of all of the 2017 finalists. #perimeterbooks #deutscheborsephotographyprize #danalixenberg #imperialcourts

Tupac Shakur // "A lot of people...have a problem being true to they self. They have a problem looking into the mirror and looking directly into their own souls. The reason I can...walk around, the reason I am who I am today is because I can look directly into my face and find my soul."

Congratulations @danalixenberg for winning the 2017 Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize for her project Imperial Courts.

"In 1992, I traveled to South Central Los Angeles on assignment from Vrij Nederland, a Dutch weekly magazine, for a story on the destruction and rebuilding of the area after the Rodney King riots that broke out after the LAPD officers involved in his beating were acquitted. Being physically present in South Central following the riots touched me deeply. Driving around desolate streets that resembled a war zone, smelling the air, meeting people, coming into contact with the human toll of pervasive racial injustice—all of this had a significant impact on me. The reality of any explosive situation is at once more and less dramatic, and always more nuanced and complex than what the mainstream media can convey, so being there in South Central enabled me to be confronted with people’s individual and collective experience of a long and ongoing history of violent events.” — Dana Lixenberg

Yes! Dana Lixenberg wins Deutsche Börse photography prize for her epic portrait project Imperial Courts (1993-2015)✊🏾💥 @danalixenberg #imperialcourts #femalephotographers #danalixenberg #deutscheborsephotographyprize #portraitphotography #portraiture #losangeles #socialdocumentary

Dana Lixenberg's photographic project titled 'Imperial Courts', is part of the series of works from The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, currently on display @thephotographersgallery. Lixenberg first visited the Imperial Courts housing estates in Watts, South-Central LA in 1992 to work on a magazine story covering the Rodney King race riots following the trial. Over the course of twenty years, she returned many times to document the residents during their childhood and teenage years to their adulthood. Many of them left the area, some went to jail, a few had an unfortunate end and some had children of their own.
The project is a complex story of people that would often be forgotten in a system that does not regard their position in society. It is also a story of minorities that are brushed aside as another community in America that is part of the cycle of poverty #DanaLixenberg #imperialcourts #blackandwhite #photography #deutscheborse #thephotographersgallery
