Capricious Award

2017 Capricious Photo Award Winner: John Edmonds

Capricious Photo Award


The Capricious Award will provide one photographer with the resources and editorial support to bring a body of work to fruition. The award will be juried by photographers, critics and curators, with the intent to select a photographer whose work is both distinct in point of view and boldly relevant to the unfolding issues of our time. The award continues the legacy of Capricious Magazine, culminating in the form of a photo book.

The recipient will be awarded with financial and editorial resources, valued at $10,000, geared towards the production of a limited edition book.

The jury is lead by Capricious Founder/Publisher Sophie Mörner and Senior Editor/Associate Publisher Anika Sabin, alongside Lauren Cornell (Director of the Graduate Program/Chief Curator at CCS Bard), Katherine Hubbard (Interdisciplinary Artist/Educator), Matt Keegan (Visual Artist/Educator), Guadalupe Rosales (Artist/Archivist), Ka-Man Tse (Photographer/Video Artist/Educator), Leilah Weinraub (Filmmaker/CEO of Hood by Air), Lyndsy Welgos (Visual Artist/Founder of Topical Cream), and JOFF (Associate Director of Parsons MFA Fashion Design & Society).
