The New Vanguard Photography Prize

At Aperture Gallery

Aperture and Document Journal, in partnership with Calvin Klein, are pleased to present The New Vanguard Photography Prize, spotlighting image makers on the front lines of art and fashion, with support from Ford Models, and powered by Swipecast.

Open to applications from all around the world, The New Vanguard Photography Prize sought unrepresented talents of all ages and backgrounds, with a focus on discovering new and visionary photographers across fashion and the fine arts. From those submissions, a jury selected a shortlist of 25 artists, which then was narrowed to five finalists who went on to create a series of exclusive photos for Document Journal. The exhibition will feature work from the 25 shortlisted artists, with the winner and recipient of a special cover of the Fall/Winter 2018 edition of Document Journal will be revealed at the opening reception.
