From the Foundation

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 26, 2015) The Annenberg Space for Photography today announced the Wallis Annenberg Prize to coincide with its next exhibition, Emerging, on view June 6 through September 20, 2015. Organized in partnership with Photo District News (PDN), the award-winning publication for professional photographers, this exhibition presents images by more than 90 emerging photographers from around the world who bring fresh perspectives and creative techniques to professional photography. Emerging explores how a new generation of photographers examines a variety of topics, from the personal to the global: youth culture, family, the environment, economic uncertainty, conflict and civil unrest, and the nature of the photographic image.

In December 2013, a collection of sacred Native American objects was set to be sold in a private auction in Paris. Many of these objects are considered living beings by the Hopi tribe, and would have most likely been purchased by private collectors.
