Presented by the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, the HCB Award. It is intended for a photographer who has already completed a significant body of work, close to the documentary approach. The candidate must be supported by an institution — museum, gallery, independent curator, publisher, etc.
The HCB Award is presented once every two years and grants the indivisible amount of 35 000 euros. The winner is selected by an international jury of seven prominent personalities of the art world. The winner’s artwork project will be exhibited at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson and published as a book, in the spring 2019.
The HCB Award is made possible thanks to the partnership of the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès, who further supports the winner’s artwork with an exhibition in New York, through its alliance with the Aperture Foundation.
