Delivered by the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation, the “HCB prize” is designed to help promote creativity for artists unable to complete their work for lack of financial backing.
The prize is attributed every two years and offers €3000. The winner’s work is exposed and a catalog published 18 months after the prize is delivered. The 2009 prize was awarded to South African photographer David Goldblatt for his project “TJ”, 1948-2010, and is on exhibition at the Henri Cartier-Bresson Foundation until April 17.
David Goldblatt is a South African photographer born in Randfontein in 1930. His family, from Lithuania, emigrated to South Africa around 1893 to escape anti-Semitic persecution. He developed a very early interest in photography and the history of his native country, and began working as a press photographer during the early days of Apartheid. In 1989, he founded the Market Photography Workshop in Johannesburg, received the Hasselblad award in 2006, participated in the Rencontres d’Arles, and was on exhibit at the Jewish Museum.
