2022 BarTur Photo Award Exhibition
February 9-19, 2023
BERLIN, GERMANY- f³ – The Freiraum für Fotografie will exhibit the 2022 BarTur Photo Award winners from February 9-19, 2023. The $20,000 award is presented to photographers around the world who use their photography as a way to educate and bring attention to current global issues. The award categories include Climate Change, Unity and Diversity, and the newest addition: the Ann Lesley Bar-Tur Photo. Women, queer and non-binary photographers, and photographers from the Global South are given special attention as part of this award. The BarTur Photo Award was created in 2011 by Amnon and Armon Bar-Tur in memory of their late wife and mother, Ann Lesley Bar-Tur. According to the Bar-Tur Photo award website, “the award seeks work that is unique, compelling, and inspiring.”
The goal of the BarTurn Photo Award exhibition is to highlight contemporary and original works from the nine award winners. Photojournalist Veronique De Viguerie received first prize for her project, Women are Amazing, documenting the country of Afghanistan for four years between 2003 and 2007. Her photos follow the rise of the Taliban and the experiences women faced during that time. By highlighting the women’s strength and their ability to overcome adversity, De Viguerie worked to challenge the stereotypical representation of women in Afghanistan. The eight other winners of the 2022 BarTur Photo Award are Kelly Beckta, Supratim Bhattacharjee, Chinmoy Biswas, Philip Cheung, Giacomo d'Orlando, Maroussia Mbaye, Espen Rasmussen, and Daniele Vita. The exhibition's opening night on February 8, 2023, at 7:00 pm will feature some of these award-winning photographers. This exhibition offers free admission to guests.
