Hariban Award started this year as a new project of collotype atelier. Thank you for a lot of quality submissions beyond our expectation. Total applicants were 131 from all over Asia, Europe and the United States. Jurors were amazed at the quality of the wide variety of works.

Right after the submission period of July 30, the first audit was started. 51applicants were selected from 131 applicants and passed the first audit ⇒a list of 51 who passed here. Then, the second audit began. The jurors narrowed down the applicants to 26 at first. They, however, didn’t reach the final results from there because votes by jurors divided. It was hard to select the Grand-prize because those were all wonderful portfolios. Therefore, decided to narrow down the 26 to 10. ⇒finalists here

As a result of the stricter audit, eventually the grand prize was decided to go to Awoiska. Each juror also selected one artist whom he /she would like to introduce. That was how there jury’s special award recipients were selected.

Besides above prizes, “We want to collotype these” prize is being created. Artisans of our atelier are selecting from all the 131 applicants. Please look forward to the result.

Awoiska, the winner of Hariban Award, will come to Kyoto, probably at the beginning of October and stay for two weeks to create collotype prints with artisans. We will report her visits later. Collotype printings she will make with artisans during her stay will be exhibited at the Kyotographie as the official program next year.

We also plan to publish an official catalogue at the time of Kyotographie. Works of the Grand-prize winner and Jury’s special award recipients will appear in the catalogue. Works of finalists and “We want to collotype these by artisans” prize recipient will be introduced in the catalogue too.

Now, let me introduce recipients’ biographies and comments.

Grand- Prize
Awoiska van der Molen   ⇒Homepage

Awoiska van der Molen

Van der Molen is known for her monochrome landscapes. She stands out as someone who remains rooted in the riches of analogue photography and printing. She plays out these roots in an extreme manner by creating monumental pieces that combine intentionality in choice of subject and photographic craftsmanship. She prints all the barytas herself in the darkroom.
In 2011 she was the finalist at the Hyères Photography Festival in France and
in the same year she has won the Alt. + 1000 prize at the Festival de la Photography de la Montagne,.

“I am very excited and gratefull that I have been invited to meet Kyoto’s master artisan printers in the Benrido Collotype atelier and produce collotype prints with them. This is an amazing opportunity and I’m beyond words that I will have the chance to collaborate with the Benrido atelier on printing my photo works. Learning from the rich experience of the craftsmen on how to interpret images and how to translate these with the complex process of collotype printing will be an unforgettable experience. I have no doubt that this collaboration will have a significant influence on my work as a photo based artist. I can’t wait to meet the Benrido-team to start working together!
Lastly, I would like to thank all members of the jury for believing that my photo works merits the rare process of collotype printing. I am looking forward showing you the outcomes, hopefully in person!
Japan with your rich culture and nature, finally we’ll meet. A wish comes true.”

Jury’s special award
Antony Cairns     ⇒Homepage

(c)Antony Cairns

Born in the east end of London, England, Antony Cairns has been taking photographs since the age of 15. A constant theme in his images has been the city of his birth. He has chosen his subject and is on a path to document his city, the place he calls home, a metropolis that is certainly the centre of his universe. A traditionally trained photographer who learnt his trade at the London College of Printing towards the end of the 1990s, his photographic practice has remained rooted in chemical-based techniques. Shooting almost exclusively on black & white film, he prints all his own work, often experimenting with forgotten or discarded methods, and frequently becoming engrossed with the process, its imperfections and oddities.

“Thank you very much Hariban award for your support and kind words about my work, this special jury's award will help me carry on printing in the darkroom and experimenting with Black and white photography techniques!”

Jury’s special award
Marco Van Duyvendijk   ⇒Homepage

(c)Marco Van Duyvendijk

Marco van Duyvendijk was born in the Netherlands. After a degree in psychology, Marco goes to Romania to spend a year devoting himself to photography. In the years that follow, Van Duyvendijks work will not take him just to Romania, but also to Mongolia, China, South Korea and many other countries. He sees art, and therefore his own photography, as a means of communication between East and West and this field of mutual influence is where he feels at home.
Marco van Duyvendijk is a slow photographer, preferring to work on a series for months and sometimes years. He does not confine himself to any single genre, alternating travel and documentary photography with portraits.

“In 2012 I was in Kyoto and visited the Benrido Collotype laboratory. I was fascinated by it, so when I read about the Hariban Award I had no choice but to participate. I am very happy and honored that my work received the Jury's Special Award. Of course I am also slightly jealous of my Dutch colleague Awoiska van der Molen that she won the Hariban Award, but I think her work is very beautiful and mysterious, so her first prize is very well-deserved. I am sure that her work will look beautifully in collotype.”
