STAY TUNED : IN A COUPLE OF HOURS, WE WILL BE ANNOUNCING THE SHORTLIST FOR THE 2017 PARIS PHOTO–APERTURE FOUNDATION PHOTOBOOK AWARDS
This year’s Shortlist selection was made by a jury comprising @gregoryhalpern (Winner of the 2016 PhotoBook of the Year Award), @la.martin_ (Creative Director of the @aperturefnd book program and publisher of The PhotoBook Review), @kathyryan1 (Director of Photography, @nytmag), Joel Smith (Richard L. Menschel Curator of Photography at @themorganlibrary & Museum), and @christophwiesnerparis (Artistic Director, Paris Photo). The jurying of the Awards takes place in two stages. The first part took place from September 20 to September 22, an intense three-day process that involved looking over 900 submissions to select the shortlisted books in all categories. “The task of the Shortlist jury is essentially a curatorial one,” says Martin. “The selected books comprise an exhibition that showcases the incredible array of creativity and excellence taking place right now in contemporary photobook making.” A final jury in Paris, to be announced, will select the winners for all three prizes, which will be revealed on November 10, 2017, at Paris Photo. All shortlisted and winning titles will then be profiled in The PhotoBook Review, a biannual publication that accompanies Aperture magazine, and exhibited at Paris Photo and Aperture Gallery in New York, touring thereafter.
