"The European Publishers Award for Photography was established in 1994 to offer photographers a chance to see one of their "substantial, completed and unpublished photographic book project" released in five editions across five European countries.
Previous winners have included Bruce Gilden, Simon Norfolk, Paolo Pellegrin, Jacob Aue Sobol, Klavdij Sluban and Davide Monteleone among many others. This year, Italian photographer Alessandro Imbriaco was selected from a shortlist of seven photographers, which included Kurt Tong, Luca Desienna and Fernando Moleres. Moleres was shortlisted for his project Behind Bars, Juveniles in Sierra Leone Prisons, which BJP reviewed last year. Imbriaco won the prize for his work on Rome's housing problems. "This led him to explore the peripheral and hidden spaces of the city," say the judges. "The Garden is one of those places. It is a small swamp under a flyover on the ring road circling the eastern outskirts of Rome - a failed nature reserve that ended up protecting other living creatures: Angela, a six-year-old child, was born here and grew up here with her parents Piero, from Sicily, and Luba, from Russia." Imbriaco's book will be published at the end of the year by Actes Sud in France, Blume in Spain, Dewi Lewis Publishing in the UK, Kehrer Verlag in Germany and Peliti Associati in Italy.
