Hines and Royal Academy Schools Announce Photography Scholarship
LONDON.- The Royal Academy Schools and the international real estate company Hines have awarded two photography scholarships to artists at the Royal Academy Schools.

Dzenana Hozic, a Bosnian born artist, and Kraig Wilson from Middlesborough, are both based in London studying Fine Art at the Royal Academy Schools.

The scholarships have been awarded to the two artists to record the construction of Hines’ current mixed-use development of One Grafton Street in Mayfair.

In her photography, Dzenana Hozic explores the relationship between space and individuals; how, through architecture, space is tailored and controlled. Kraig Wilson is a traditional portraiture photographer: his style ranges from documentary to staged studio shots. Dzenana and Kraig will be documenting the construction activities at the site as the new development emerges from the ground. Dzenana and Kraig will also be recording the work of a well-known artist (yet to be announced) who will be creating a piece of artwork to be incorporated into the façade of One Grafton Street.

The Hines Photographic Scholarship is part of the One Spirit Showcase – a series of collaborations between Hines and cultural organisations that act as a platform for Hines to support the arts and other cultural activities connected to its development projects. This collaboration with the Royal Academy Schools continues Hines’ long-standing commitment to the arts.

Robbie Pitman, Hines UK, commented, “This collaboration enables us to support the exceptional talent of the Royal Academy Schools’ students. Dzenana and Kraig will provide us with a unique record of the construction of One Grafton Street. Their work will be an integral part of the development process for this building reflecting Hines’ commitment to integrating art and architecture.”

Professor Maurice Cockrill RA, The Keeper of the Royal Academy of Arts, commented, “I am extremely grateful to Hines for their continuing support of students from the Royal Academy Schools. Everyone here at the Schools appreciates and sees the value of these photographic scholarships and it is tremendous encouragement for the students involved. Kraig and Dzenana are extremely talented young artists in their quite distinctive ways. Whatever aspects of this project they decide to focus upon, they will bring their own sensitivity, technical expertise and humanity to the images they produce. They have our best wishes to produce work of excellence befitting this whole scheme.”

The first photography scholarship was awarded to another Royal Academy Schools’ artist, Alana Lake, who was commissioned to record the process of demolition of the building throughout 2008.
