Photographic Museum of Humanity

My series “The Continuty of Man” has been awarded the Photographic Museum of Humanity 2013 Grant Second Prize. The jury was formed by Martin Parr (Magnum Photos), Kira Pollack (Time Magazine) and Sebastian Liste (Young Reporter of Perpignan 2012).
From the jury report:
The SECOND PRIZE was assigned to Belgian photographer Nick Hannes for his work The Continuity of Man, a documentary portrait of the Mediterranean Region and the 20 countries that border the sea. Kira Pollack said of the awarded series: “The Continuity of Man lends viewers an offbeat view of the Mediterranean region and the countries surrounding the sea. Nick Hannes’ odd and original perspective demonstrates the start of a strong and consistent body of work — one that we would like to see developed in even greater depth through this prize.”
