LONDON.- Now in its fifteenth year, the Prize will be on display from Saturday 2 April until Sunday 30 April 2011, with the winner announced at a special award ceremony on Tuesday 26 April 2011. The Photographers’ Gallery is currently closed for extensive redevelopment until Autumn 2011 to create new galleries and an education floor, meaning the 2011 Prize will be shown at Ambika P3 at the University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1.

The four shortlisted artists are Thomas Demand, Roe Ethridge, Jim Goldberg, and Elad Lassry.

•Thomas Demand (b.1964, Germany) is nominated for his exhibition, Nationalgalerie, at Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (18 September 2009 – 17 January 2010).

•Roe Ethridge (b.1969, USA) is nominated for his solo exhibition at Les Recontres d’Arles Photography 2010, France (3 July – 19 September 2010).

•Jim Goldberg (b.1953, USA) is nominated for his exhibition Open See at The Photographers’ Gallery, London (16 October 2009 – 31 January 2010).

•Elad Lassry (b.1977, Israel) is nominated for his exhibition Elad Lassry at Kunsthalle Zürich (13 February – 25 April 2010).

The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011 is presented by The Photographers’ Gallery, London. The annual award of £30,000 rewards a living photographer, of any nationality, who has made the most significant contribution, in exhibition or publication format, to the medium of photography in Europe between 1 October 2009 and 30 September 2010.

This year’s Jury is: Alex Farquharson (Director, Nottingham Contemporary); Marloes Krijnen (Founding Director, Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam); Joel Sternfeld (artist, USA); and Anne-Marie Beckmann (Curator, Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Germany). Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, is the non-voting Chair.

Brett Rogers, Chair of the Jury and Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, said: ‘Ranging from the conceptual to the politically engaged, each nominee interrogates the photographic medium in their own distinct way. Thomas Demand’s clear yet strangely enigmatic constructed images explore German history since 1945. Infused with an element of nostalgia and the uncanny, Roe Ethridge blurs the commercial with the editorial to create a new sense of Americana. Open See continues Jim Goldberg’s experimental approach to storytelling combining image and text to document the plight of refugees and immigrants to Europe. Elad Lassry’s work plays with ideas of authorship, originality and appropriation through the innovative use of photography and film.’

Alexandra Hachmeister, Corporate Responsibility for Deutsche Börse, commented: ‘Again the Jury members have selected four very strong finalists, varying in age and nationality as well as in their technique, subject matter and approach. All of them reflect the aims of the Prize, being an international and contemporary award. As title sponsor we are proud to announce together with The Photographers’ Gallery the shortlist for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2011.’

The Deutsche Börse Photography Prize continues to be one of the most prominent exhibitions at The Photographers’ Gallery and is amongst the most prestigious of the international arts awards. Deutsche Börse Group is one of the leading exchange organisations and a major sponsor of photographic art. The Group owns an extensive art collection of contemporary photography which, to date, includes more than 800 works by over eighty international artists.
