GPE announces the winner of its inaugural award program, the ‘GPE Future London Photography Award 2023’, Nico Froehlich, an emerging talent from South East London. Nico has been awarded the opportunity to have his portfolio - depicting authentic London community life - showcased in an exhibition at 45 Mortimer St, London.
The ‘GPE Future London Photography Award 2023’ was created by the London property development company to support emerging artists in navigating the gap between graduating and establishing a long career. As a result of working alongside artists in the highly competitive world of architectural photography, GPE recognised the support needed for young people when establishing themselves in the industry and forging a financially stable career. The awards program is an extension of GPE’s social impact strategy centred around supporting and celebrating the London community.
The winning photo series produced by Nico was in response to GPE’s brief to explore London’s communities and to capture how people use the spaces between the city’s buildings. The award panel felt that Nico’s submission intertwined the realms of architectural photography with a vibrant celebration of humanity.
The photo series will be showcased and put on sale at 45 Mortimer St, London, for nine months following the exclusive private viewing on 6th July 2023, with proceeds from sales of his work going to Nico.
