Joan Fontcuberta

2013 Hasselblad Award Winner

The Hasselblad Foundation is pleased to announce that Catalan photographer Joan Fontcuberta (b. 1955, Barcelona) is the recipient of the 2013 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. Joan Fontcuberta is one of the most inventive contemporary photographers, with an over 30-year achievement of constantly investigating and questioning the photographic medium. His work is distinguished by original and playful conceptual approaches that particularly explore photographic conventions, means of representation and claims to truth. He challenges concepts of science and fiction in interdisciplinary projects that extend far beyond the gallery space. In addition to his photographic practice, Joan Fontcuberta's capacities as a writer, teacher and curator have been greatly inspirational to the younger generation. LINK Hasselblad  LINK Fontcuberta
