Prize & Collection 奖项与收藏

*

Over the last decade, photography prizes and collections are increasingly worthy of our attention, as photography gradually transitions from a sort of cultural phenomenon to the circulatory system of contemporary art and culture. As photography evolves from purely documentary to increasingly artistic, it is through prizes and collections that we can discover the epitome of photography and societal development. Additionally, prizes and collections are an important means for accessing the informed critique of individual collectors and institutions.
摄影领域的奖项和收藏是这十年来最值得关注的事情,摄影正在从一种文化现象,逐渐的走入当代艺术和文化的循环系统,摄影从纪实到艺术性的发展,从奖项和收藏中,我们可以发现摄影与社会发展的缩影,体会收藏者和机构对摄影、价值、艺术的睿智判断。
