Ellen Auerbach Fellowship for Photography 2020. Ferhat Bouda
The Ellen Auerbach Fellowship for Photography has been awarded to Algerian photographer Ferhat Bouda. From the jury’s statement: “What kind of photography does Bouda produce? Whether document, reportage or art is of no importance, his images of the Berbers are characterised by a moving human quest, an optical scanning that poses the question as to what humanity is with every exposure.” Based in Frankfurt since 2005, Bouda travelled North Africa and the Sahel for his photographic project.
