The long list of the Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards has been made public.

“Far away from home: the voices, the body and the periphery” is one of the ten titles chosen in the Photography Book award category by the jury Mariama Attah, Anthony Luvera and Eugénie Shinkle.

I feel so honoured and grateful!!

Eugénie Shinkle: “I was really struck by the innovative way that photography and language are brought together in this volume. Scraps and fragments of text – poetic and deeply moving – are merged with archival images and Tasheva’s own austere architectural photographs. A beautifully measured work that recognises the limits of both image and text to fully articulate complex experiences of cultural trauma and loss..”

 

 
  Far Away From Home will be presented as part of the Paris Photo–Aperture PhotoBook Awards 2023 exhibition at Tenderbooks.
The opening reception will be on Tuesday 14 May, 6-8pm during PhotoLondon week. The exhibition continues until Saturday 1 June, Tuesday - Saturday, 12-6pm.
