The Grange Prize at the Art Gallery of Ontario

The Grange Prize recognizes the best in Canadian and international contemporary photography. It was launched in 2008 and organizers work with an international partner every year to select a shortlist of four photographers -- two from Canada and two from the partner country. The artists live in the partner country and create new works, an incredible opportunity for both the artist and the country seen with a fresh sensibility. This year the partner country is India, and the artists are Gauri Gill, Elaine Stocki, Althea Thauberger and Nadini Valli.

Their images are on view at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and here a short video of some of their work:

You can visit the Grange Prize site for more information on voting and the individual artists. The exhibition runs until November 27, 2011.
