tradition, but that nevertheless results in a fresh and distinct voice in photography today. The jury would also like to make special mention of Noémie Goudal as runner up, whose work stood out for its complex treatment of form, structure, landscape and environment. The chairman of the jury noted on the winner: "Alex Prager's work is original, intelligent and seductive. She thoroughly deserves her place in the company of former Foam Paul Huf winners, which is fast becoming a who's who of contemporary photographic practice." The members of the jury were: Simon Baker, Chairman (UK, Curator of Photography an International Art, Tate) Nathalie Herschdorfer (Switzerland, Director International Photography Festival Alt. + 1000) Darius Himes (USA, assistant-director Fraenkel Gallery / Co-Founder Radius Books) Vasif Kortun, (Turkey, Director research and programs, SALT) Viviane Sassen (Netherlands, photographer).
