Leaving Venice

Richard Mosse’s ‘The Enclave’ is being packed up and leaving Venice this week. The exhibition has been a major success with  more than 78,000 visitors.

Richard has been nominated for the Deutsche Borse Photography Prize 2014 - one of the most prestigious prizes in the world of photography.

Work by the shortlisted photographers will be shown in an exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery, Spring 2014, followed by its presentations at the Deutsche Börse headquarters in Frankfurt/Eschborn.

The exhibition also received huge media coverage. CNN described Richard’s work as “beautiful and challenging”, while the Wall Street Journal listed Richard as one of five artists to watch from the Biennale.

The Guardian selected Richard as one of the ten best artists at the Venice Biennale.

Following the presentation in Venice, The Enclave will travel to the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, where it will be on view from January 16 – March 30, 2014.
