Daisuke Yokota wins the Photo London John Kobal Residency Award

Photo London aims to be a launch pad for photographers at the beginning of their careers. Galleries exhibiting at Photo London were invited to nominate an emerging artist for the Photo london John Kobal Residency Award. Generously sponsored by the John Kobal Foundation, the award gives the winning photographer the chance  to complete a two-month residency in New York run by Residency Unlimited.

We are pleased announce that the winner of the Kobal Award is Daisuke Yokota, of G/P Gallery. Chair of the Jury, Sean O’Hagan praised Yokota’s ‘meticulous approach to photographic experimentation… The panel was particularly drawn to Daisuke’s approach and end result, which hark back to an identifiably Japanese tradition, whilst pushing the medium irrevocably forward.’
