Hannah Collins Wins 2015 SPECTRUM International Prize for Photography

Hannah Collins has been named winner of the 2015 SPECTRUM International Prize for Photography. Awarded by the Foundation of Lower Saxony in Germany, the prize was created as way to “pay tribute to the significance of photography as a modern medium of artistic expression,” noted a press release. It is worth nearly twenty-thousand dollars and includes a solo exhibition at the Sprengel Museum. Collins is the ninth recipient of the prize; she will be honored in the spring of 2015 alongside the opening of her show. Said the adjudicators of the award: “Profoundly democratic, Collins’s work quietly insists on revealing the complexities of life, and the ways we relate to the world around us collectively and as individuals, through vision and memory, to achieve works of subtle power.”
