Carla Sozzani, Coco Capitán Among Belmond Photographic Residency Jury

LONDON — Leading up to the 2024 edition of Photo London, the fair’s lead sponsor Belmond, the LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned luxury hotel brand, on Wednesday revealed the jury for its inaugural photographic residency, an annual award that aims to recognize emerging photographic talents who challenge the conventional ideas of travel photography.

The jury includes Simon Baker, director at Maison Européenne de la Photographie; Carla Sozzani, gallerist and founder of 10 Corso Como; photographer Coco Capitán; British writer and curator Ekow Eshun; American author and curator Antwaun Sargent; Matthieu Charon, cofounder of the independent publisher and gallery RVB Books, and Arnaud Champenois, senior vice president of global brand at Belmond.

Open to all nationalities and ages, with the requirement being that the talent is not yet or has not been represented by an agent or gallery, the photographic residency will offer the winner a financial award of 15,000 euros, an all-expenses covered residency at one of Belmond’s 47 properties across 28 countries and territories, a publication in partnership with RVB Books, a showcase in a global city, and mentorship from Belmond’s global network of photographic experts.

Prizes for the runner-up will be revealed at a later date.

The winner and runner-up will be announced during Paris Photo, slated for Nov. 7 to 10.

Candidates will be sourced from both jury-nominated and open call submissions. Artists will be invited to submit either a new or unpublished existing body of work of 10 images that depict a particular place, destination or culture.

For the occasion, Belmond is also launching a series of limited-edition art books created in partnership with artists from the Belmond Legends campaign, which includes original commissions from artists including Capitán, Rosie Marks and Letizia Le Fur.

It will be accompanied by an exhibition based on the artists’ respective books featuring never-before- seen work, shot at three Belmond locations: the Mount Nelson Hotel in Cape Town by Marks; the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express in Europe by Capitán, and the hotel Caruso on Italy’s Amalfi Coast by Le Fur.
