Four photographers, Simon Norfolk, Bertien van Manen, Jitka Hanzlova and Juergen Teller (Me 1, Winterthur, Switzerland, 2000, by Teller pictured) have made this year’s Citibank Photography Prize shortlist. The Photographers’ Gallery director Paul Wombell says a theme of social engagement connects the finalists’ work, with subjects ranging from the women of Brixton to the wreckage of Kabul. ‘Their work signals a return to a more documentary approach in contemporary photography,’ he says. The work will be exhibited at The Photographers’ Gallery, London from 31 January until 22 March, with the prize-winner announced on 27 February.
