Prix Viviane Esders – reward the career of a photographer

A prize that rewards each year the career of a professional European photographer over 60 years old, independent and always in a creative process. A major player in the world of photography, Viviane Esders is pursuing her commitment by creating this eponymous prize.
In December 2021, she launched the first edition of the Prix Viviane Esders.

The prize recognizes an already recognized career, whose importance deserves to be highlighted and to be more clearly inscribed in the history of photography.
