Life Framer first edition pop-up exhibition, running April 19th – May 3rd 2014 at JURAPLATZ, Switzerland.
JURAPLATZ is a nonprofit independent Public Art Space and works as a satellite for international artists and festivals. Converted into an art-platform from a tram stop dating from the late ’30s, it is in the city of Biel/Bienne, the heart of the Swiss watch-making industry. JURAPLATZ was founded in October 2010 and has been hosting important exhibitions ever since; such as as Joan Fontcuberta (Hasselblad Award 2013) and Timo Arnall and Augustin Rebetez (Foam Magazine Talent 2013).
The Life Framer Award Show is the culmination of the first edition of the Life Framer photography award. Following a successful exhibition at theprintspace in the heart of London, UK, the award show travels to Switzerland, for a special pop-up exhibition at Juraplatz.
The judging panel for the year was composed of 12 globally acclaimed photographers who’ve won numerous awards such as Hasselblad Masters, WPO, PDN, American Photo and IPA. This exhibition showcases their 24 winning images alongside a selection of hand-picked honorary mentions.
