Explanatory statement of the jury:
Nanna Hänninen lives and works in Kuopio, Finland, and has held a number of international exhibitions, e.g. in Germany and Spain. Hänninen graduated from the University of Art and Design Helsinki in 2002. She has taken used versatile possibilities of photographic material: like long exposure times, negatives backlinks colors and multiple exposures. In spite of the experimentation, her pictures are combined with a strong and clear analysis. Hänninen has so far been able to renew her career several times (e.g., the series Fear and Security and New Landscapes).
