We are very pleased to announce that Antony Cairns has been awarded the Images Vevey 2017/2018 Special Jury Prize. He was awarded the prize for his proposal of a new body of work based on and entitled ‘The Tale of Gordon Earl Adams,’ an inventor who disappeared while building a time machine in the 1920s. The jury were impressed by Cairns’ “innovative and imaginative combination of archival material and attention to the language of technological obsolescence.”
