Landskrona Foto & Breadfield Dummy Award 2015 was awarded to:

YOU WOULD BE EARTH by Meral Güler (USA) and Dan Porter (UK).

The jury’s citation
You Would Be Earth is a story unanchored in time and space. So difficult to grasp, define and classify. It is enticing yet elusive. Meral Güler and Dan Porter are awarded this prize for their ability to awaken the unknown within us.

The jury’s honourable mention went to Marco Frauchiger (CH) for the book M13.

Jury 2015
The 2015 jury consisted of Per Lindström (Landskrona Foto), Jenny Lindhe (Breadfield), Silvia Loddo (osservatorio fotografico), Nick McLean (Éditions du LIC) and Veronique Bourgoin (artist).

There was a big interest in the Awards and we received 112 Dummies from all over the world. The quality was very high throughout and it was challenging for the jury to select only four projects.

Nominees 2015
Meral Guler (USA) & Dan Porter (UK)
