This year’s Jerwood/Photoworks Awards winners explore once-hidden experiences, championing working-class identities and emotions deemed incompatible with societal norms

Employing photographic, printmaking and engineering techniques, Simpson’s multilayered works are informed by social, political and economic impulses of the past and present
Inspired by personal identity, the natural world, and the fear of dying, the three young artists in this year’s Jerwood/Photoworks Awards exhibition are presenting very different work. Picked out as winners in January 2017, all three have received a year of mentoring on their work from industry specialists such as photographer Mitch Epstein, publisher Michael Mack, and gallerist Maureen Paley. They each also received a bursary of £5000 and access to a production fund of another £5000, to make new work which goes on show in London’s Jerwood Space from 17 January-11 March then tours to Bradford and Belfast.
