Deutsche Börse Prize

It was announced today that the winner of the £30,000 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2014 is Richard Mosse. He was nominated for his exhibition The Enclave at the 2013 Venice Biennale, Irish Pavilion. It's one of these tedious video installation thingies. Using discontinued military surveillance film, he shot the jungle warzone of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, where 5.4 million people have died since 1998, in pretty pink. It doesn't work for me. Shown is a still Safe from Harm (2012) from The Enclave. CLICK to watch a video on The Photographers' Gallery website. The show runs until 22 June.
