The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize has just announced the four shortlisted photographers that will appear in the 2023 exhibition. Taking place at The Photographer’s Gallery in London from March 3 - June 11, the prize celebrates photographers who redefine genres, push the boundaries and explore themes of race, identity, gender and traditions. 

This year’s shortlist includes Belgian photographer Bieke Depoorter for her exhibition A Chance Encounter at CO Berlin. Blurring the lines between photographer and subject, Depoorter’s nominated project explores two chance encounters through the series Michael, and Agata. While Michael examines the disappearance of a man she met on a street in Portland, Agata explores a first meeting in a Parisian strip-club evolving with the constantly changing narrative.
