Kraszna-Krausz Book Awards 2020 - winners announced

The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation has announced the two winners of its annual Photography and Moving Image Book Awards. Chicago-based artist LaToya Ruby Frazier has won the Photography Book Award for her eponymous book LaToya Ruby Frazier (Mousse Publishing & Mudam Luxembourg), which brings together three photographic series that comment on racial discrimination, poverty, post-industrial decline and its human costs.

Hannah Frank has posthumously been awarded the Moving Image Book Award for Frame by Frame: A Materialist Aesthetics of Animated Cartoons (University of California Press). In this book, Frank takes a frame by frame look at the laborious process behind the pre-digital processes of cartoon-making, enriching understandings of the Golden Age of animation.

In lieu of a physical awards ceremony, the 2020 winning titles will be showcased in a free digital event in partnership with The Photographers’ Gallery at the end of September, featuring conversations about the two winning titles, which will be open to the public online.
