Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra wins the 2017 Hasselblad Award

Dutch artist Rineke Dijkstra has been announced as the recipient of the 2017 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. She will receive a SEK 1,000,000 cash-prize (approx. £90,000), an exhibition at the Hasselblad Center, Gothenburg, opening 10 October 2017, as well as a publication about her work.

The foundation says Dijkstra’s large-scale portraits and video studies “recall the visual acuity of seventeenth-century Dutch portraiture, offering intimate portrayals of her sitters whilst also suggesting the situated aspects of their being.”

The Hasselblad Award is given annually to honor outstanding achievement in photography. Previous recipients have included Stan Douglas, Paul Graham, Joan Fontcuberta, Robert Adams, Nan Goldin, Cindy Sherman and Robert Frank.
