We’re pleased to announce the five finalists for the 2018 Aperture Portfolio Prize, an international photography competition whose goal is to identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition:
Dylan Hausthor & P. Guilmoth
Eduardo L Rivera
Fabiola Cedillo, Untitled, 2016; from the series Los mundos de TITA
Philip Cheung, Weapon maintenance, Kandahar Airfield, 2010; from the series The Thing About Remembering
Dylan Hausthor & P. Guilmoth, Untitled, 2018; from the series Sleep Creek
Eduardo L Rivera, A Seat at the Table, 2016; from the series Over Dry Lands
Ka-Man Tse, Untitled, 2017; from the series Narrow Distances
This year, Aperture’s staff reviewed more than 900 portfolios. Our challenge is to select one winner and four honorable mentions from this overwhelming response. One finalist will be selected as the winner and will be published in Aperture magazine, receive a $3,000 cash prize, and present an exhibition in New York.
We are delighted to welcome these five finalists to our ranks of illustrious past winners and finalists, joining such artists as Natalie Krick, Eli Durst, Drew Nikonowicz, Amy Elkins, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Alexander Gronsky, Sarah Palmer, Louie Palu, Bryan Schutmaat, and many others. The winner of the 2018 Aperture Portfolio Prize will be announced later this month, and the finalists’ portfolios and statements will be featured on aperture.org.
