Belfast Exposed Futures artist wins major award at Kassel Fotobookfestival
We are delighted to announce that our next Futures artist Jan McCullough was awarded first prize for her book dummy 'Home Instruction Manual' at the Kassel Fotobookfestival.
Jury member Erik Kessels said:
"The dummy book Home Instruction Manual entered in the competition by Jan McCullough is a real discovery in 2015. Jan is a photographer from Belfast with a weak spot for manuals, books that tell you how to do things. For this project she searched the internet for tips on how to build your perfect home. After collecting all the tips, Jan rented a house and followed all the instructions given to her. She photographed the end result; a home with a forced personality. Something you can’t say about Jan McCullough, a natural talent to watch out for.
