AMSTERDAM.- Foam announced Daniel Gordon (b. 1980 Boston, USA) was chosen as the winner of the Foam Paul Huf Award 2014 by an international jury today.

This annual prize given to a photography talent under 35 years consists of € 20.000 and an exhibition in Foam Amsterdam.

The Foam Paul Huf Award continues to attract portfolios from all over the world. The winner was chosen from a pool of 100 nominated photographers, from 27 countries worldwide, by 20 nominators.

The jury was quoted as saying: "We were impressed by the high quality of submissions coming from many different countries. They showed a broad range of what photography is today. We voted unanimously for the winner Daniel Gordon, whose work draws from the classical genres of still life and portraiture explored in the main movements of modern art. Coming from a generation that is comfortable using pictures from the internet, Gordon finds a unique way of reconstructing found imagery into 3-dimensional collages, which he then photographs. We are delighted to recognize this highly original and colorful work. He thoroughly deserves his place in the company of former Foam Paul Huf Award winners, which is fast becoming a who's who of contemporary photographic practice."

The members of the jury were:

• Stefano Stoll (chairman, Director of Festival Images, Vevey, Switzerland)

• Hans Gremmen (Graphic designer, Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

• Andrea Holzherr (Exhibitions & Cultural Development Manager at Magnum Photos, Paris, France)

• Christopher McCall (Director of Pier24 Photography, San Francisco, USA)

• Kathy Ryan (Director of Photography at The New York Times Magazine, New York, USA)

This is the 8th year The Foam Paul Huf Award has been organised. Since 2007 the prize has focused entirely on young, international talent and boasts an impressive list of previous winners. These include:

2013 - Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs (1979, Switzerland);
2012 - Alex Prager (1979, USA);
2011 - Raphaël Dallaporta (1980, France);
2010 - Alexander Gronsky (1980, Estonia);
2009 - Leonie Hampton-Purchas (1978, UK);
2008 - Pieter Hugo (1976, South Africa);
2007 - Mikhael Subotzky (1981, South Africa) and Taryn Simon (1975, US)

Foam has a special relationship with Dutch photographer Paul Huf (1924-2002). Huf was known for his innovative approach to photography and was personally involved in the founding of Foam in 2001.
