2017

Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2017 was awarded to:

Gloria Oyarzabal (Spain)

The jury’s citation:

La Picnolepsia de Tshombé

This is an important story, the aesthetics of disappearance. A complex relationship being exposed between Africa and Europe using the example of The Democratic republic of Congo.  It uses multiple types of imagery and texts put together in an original and provocative manner. It is a solid project telling a story of modern conflict normally erased. A clever book that connects both significant narratives, that do not sit together easily, with the nature of photography itself – to be visible and invisible in the same moment. 

The 2017 jury consisted of:

Nina Grundemark (Grundemark Nilsson gallery), Sweden, Anna Fox (artist), England, Matilda Plöjel (graphic designer), Sweden, Moritz Neümuller (curator), Austria, Jenny Lindhe (Breadfield), Sweden

2016

Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2016 was awarded to:

Duccio Doretti (IT)

The jury’s citation:

Duccio Doretti merges his photographs into the world of images.

What makes his work so intriguing is the subtly with which he questions the medium of photography with his own photographs and, simultaneously, questions the documentation of our collected histories.

His intentions are clear; man destroys and man creates. This is a story that is told in a close and personal way.

To present his narrative DuccioDoretti makes effective use of the book format, with all its possibilities and limitations.

2015

Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2015 was awarded to:

Meral Güler (USA) and Dan Porter (UK)

The jury’s citation
You Would Be Earth is a story unanchored in time and space. So difficult to grasp, define and classify. It is enticing yet elusive. Meral Güler and Dan Porter are awarded this prize for their ability to awaken the unknown within us.

The jury’s honourable mention went to Marco Frauchiger (CH) for the book M13.

Jury 2015
The 2015 jury consisted of Per Lindström (Landskrona Foto), Jenny Lindhe (Breadfield), Silvia Loddo (osservatorio fotografico), Nick McLean (Éditions du LIC) and Veronique Bourgoin (artist).
