22 Aug DAMIEN SHEN | Bowness Photography Prize
Congratulations to Damien Shen who has been shortlisted as a finalist for the Bowness Photography Prize with his work Yut, Yee, Sahm. Damien exhibited these stunning works in his exhibition ‘A stone from another mountain’ in April this year. For this exhibition the artist searched for archival images of paintings from various Dynasty periods and discovered that the Shen family name harks from China’s Song Dynasty period.
Over the last 15 years, the Bowness Photography Prize has emerged as an important annual survey of contemporary photographic practice in Australia and one of the most prestigious prizes in the country. The prize continues to showcase excellence in photography.
In light of COVID-19 restrictions and the impact on the sector the MGA Foundation is committed to ensuring a physical as well as a virtual exhibition of the Bowness Prize finalists, and has extended the exhibition period over summer.
