In Asmara:
For his project In Asmara, Durst traveled to Eritrea’s capital, famed for the world’s largest collection of modernist buildings. Captivated by the cinematic street life, however, he turned his camera to hidden details and chronicled the East African city in silvery duotone.

This exhibition includes the shortlisted titles, in the categories of First PhotoBook, PhotoBook of the Year, and Photography Catalogue of the Year.
