MOME student on the shortlist for the Paris Photo Carte Blanche Students Award

Date: 2022.07.21
Anna Franciska Legát, former MOME BA and current MA Photography student, made the shortlist for the award of the prestigious international photo fair for her series Hellish Eden.

The Paris Photo Carte Blanche Students Award offers a platform for the discovery and promotion of emerging young photographers with outstanding talent. The four winners will be selected from among over 100 European photography and visual arts schools, with the opportunity to take part in the Paris Photo, the world’s largest international art fair for photography, between 10 and 13 November at the Grand Palais. The winning projects will also be featured in an exhibition from mid-October through the end of November at the Gare du Nord railway station in Paris. 
In her series Hellish Eden, Anna Franciska Legát illustrates the absurdity of socialism in the 70s and 80s. Based on her parents’ recollections, she captures fictional situations in a documentary approach, pointing out the subjectivity of the past and the diversity of the many different possible narratives.  
 
Selected from among over 200 entries from nine European arts universities, her project was even included in the biennial international photography talent programme of the Dutch BredaPhoto Festival back in June. Her and the other 8 shortlisted artists’ photos will be on display at a grand exhibition at the BredaPhoto Festival from 8 September.
