Prix Elysée

The Nominees’ Book 2020–2022

A wonderfully illustrated volume that documents the fourth edition of the Prix Elysée prize for photography.
The Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, one of the most renowned photography museums in Europe, has awarded the Prix Elysée biannually since 2014 to promising photographers or artists using photography. This book documents the Prix Elysée’s fourth edition. It features the work submitted by the eight nominees Alexa Brunet, Arguine Escandón and Yann Gross, Magali Koenig, Thomas Mailaender, Moises Saman, Assaf Shoshan, Alys Tomlinson, and Kurt Tong. Sketches, first drafts, and photographic studies illustrate the progress of their projects, from initial concept to image selection and design. Conversations with the artists published alongside the images reflect on the artists’ close collaboration with the museum and expand on the visual portfolios. The individual creative process thus becomes visible, and at the same time, a cross-section of contemporary art photography production emerges.
