AMSTERDAM.- Japanese photographer Daisuke Yokota (b. 1983 Saitama) was chosen as the winner of the tenth Foam Paul Huf Award 2016. This annual prize, given to a photography talent under 35 years, consists of 20.000 Euro and an exhibition in Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam.

The Foam Paul Huf Award continues to attract portfolios from all over the world. The jury chose Daisuke Yokota from a pool of 97 nominated photographers, from 29 countries worldwide.

Simon Baker (Tate London, chairman of the jury): "Daisuke Yokota is one of the most innovative and experimental young photographers working in the world today. The jury were unanimous in their decision that he win the 2016 Foam Paul Huf Award, in recognition of his complex, sophisticated practice. Yokota has established a formidable reputation as a young artist who has the ability to take photography forward into ever more original directions; from prints, to artist’s books, installations, and collaborative performance, and always with a distinctive and unmistakable visual language."

Director of Foam, Marloes Krijnen, on the Foam Paul Huf Award: "This year marks the tenth edition of the prize, a milestone we are very proud of. Since 2007, the list of winners has grown to include important names in photography, and the work has proven to be of continuous high quality, making the announcement of the winner a highly anticipated moment for the international photography community. It is fantastic we can now add Daisuke Yokota to this list. One of Foam’s primary objectives is to discover and support young talent and therefore this award, along with the Foam Magazine Talent Issue and Unseen Photo Fair, is a focal occasion for us."
