Joan Fontcuberta is the 33rd recipient of the prestigious Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography.
Fontcuberta's photography is itself about photographys own workings, and with each series he challenges the audience's trust in the veracity of the medium and its function as a system of representation. Confronting our anxieties about that system, Fontcuberta's careful fabrications are laced with clues and inconsistencies - the photographer himself even appears, disguised as Hans von Kubert or Joan Fontana.
