Hearst's Newest Talent
(NEW YORK) Harper’s Bazaar and Marie Claire staffers are about to have cultural treasure housed in their very own Tower--in addition to the treats found in the Hearst cafeteria. The winners of the first Hearst 8X10 Photography Biennial, an international competition that recognizes the professional work of emerging young photographers, were announced yesterday. With judges like Esquire EIC David Granger, Hearst Magazines VP of creative communications Judith Bookbinder, and photographers Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Peter Lindbergh and Mary Ellen Mark, this was no easy task. “When judging this competition, we looked for original ideas blended with technical expertise," said Granger. “We received more than 1,000 entries from 47 countries, and after a long deliberation, we selected eight standouts. Because the entries were so rich, we chose 10 honorable mentions as well.”
The winners, Hiroshi Wantanabe, Andy Freeberg, Louie Palu, Benedikt Partenheimer, Brad Carlie, Edith Maybin, Nicholas Prior, and Mark Kessell, will be honored by having their work on display in The Alexey Brodovitch Gallery and the Hearst Gallery, open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. by appointment. “Hearst takes pride in discovering and nurturing up-and-coming talent,” said Frank A. Bennack, Jr., vice chairman and CEO of the Hearst Corporation. “It will be exciting to watch as our winners’ work and careers evolve, as they truly are the future of magazines and media.”
