Lange-Taylor Prize from CDS: Applications due 1/31

The Dorothea Lange-Paul Taylor Prize from the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University was established to encourage collaboration between documentary photographers and writers in the tradition of the acclaimed photographer Dorothea Lang and the writer and social scientist Paul Taylor. In 1941 they published AN AMERICAN EXODUS, which remains a seminal work in documentary studies. (Note: this link leads you to an interesting review of the collaborative project by Paul Strand)

The prize is offered to a writer and a photographer in the early stages of a documentary project. The 2006 recipients were photographer Donald Weber and writer Larry Frolick, both Canadians; their winning project “The Human Is An Atom That Won’t Be Split: Resisting History in Ukraine” will document how “Ukraine’s underclass reveals the secret life of Western globalization.” Take time to view notice of previous winners as well (features audio and video clips of winners speaking about their projects).
