Bri­tish pho­tog­ra­pher Paul Gra­ham has won the 2012 Has­sel­blad Foun­da­tion In­ter­na­tional Award in Pho­tog­ra­phy, which comes with a $ 150,000 cash prize. Paul Gra­ham re­ceived the 2012 Has­sel­blad Foun­da­tion In­ter­na­tional Award in Pho­tog­ra­phy at a cer­e­mony in London, with his work go­ing on show in Oc­to­ber at the Has­sel­blad Cen­ter at the Gothen­burg Mu­seum of Art in Swe­den. Paul Gra­ham is one of the most bril­liant pho­tog­ra­phers of his gen­er­a­tion,” said the foun­da­tion in a re­leased state­ment “Dur­ing the course of his nearly 40-year ca­reer, he has pre­sented an ex­tremely fo­cussed body of work, at once per­fectly co­her­ent and never mo­not­o­nous. In images both sen­si­tive and sub­tly po­lit­i­cal, he makes tan­gi­ble the in­signif­i­cant traces of ″ the spirit of the times″ we do not nor­mally see. This makes him a pro­found force for re­newal of the deep pho­to­graphic tra­di­tion of en­gage­ment with the world.” For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.has­sel­blad­foun­da­tion.org
