Congratulations to Joan Fontcuberta, who today was announced as the winner of the prestigious 2013 Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography. One of Spain’s most prominent and innovative artists, Fontcuberta is best known for exploring the intersection between art, science, and illusion.

This Aperture limited-edition photograph is a stunning example of one of Fontcuberta’s many wild virtual fantasy worlds, which refer to the metaphoric dialogue between nature, culture, and technology. Aperture released his monograph Landscapes Without Memory in 2005. Fontcuberta also served as editor for The PhotoBook Review 003.
