The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize is an annual award, originated by The Photographers' Gallery, to recognise and support the most innovative, original and relevant photography-based practice within a given year. 

 

Our favourite of this year’s The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize nominees is Mark Neville. In 2016, on the day Britain voted to leave the European Union, Neville began work on a project based in Guingcamp, Brittany and over a three-year period, he produced a layered portrait of a provincial agricultural region.

 

Exhibiting the work at the local football stadium, the farming community, became both the subject of, and the principal audience for his project. Blurring lines between the planned, constructed photograph, and spontaneous imagery, Neville produced photobooks of imagery which he circulated back to the community.
