Reflections from the Recipient of 2011 Grange Prize

by valrac4_a3kqdy

This thought-provoking video shows Gauri Gill, this year’s Grange Prize winner, talking about her work and photography as an art form. She describes photography as a democratic art form that allows for a range of voices and calls photography an “instrument of power.” Gill’s work tends to explore marginalized groups, the idea of who is “visible” and who is “invisible,” and the camera’s ability to make people visible. She also addresses the responsibility of the photographer to the work, and how that affects the nature of the relationship between the photographer and the subjects. I’d love to hear what you think about these ideas in the comments!
