2020 Aperture Portfolio Prize Winner: Dannielle Bowman

New York–based artist Dannielle Bowman has been selected as the winner of Aperture’s 2020 Portfolio Prize, the annual award that aims to “identify trends in contemporary photography and highlight artists whose work deserves greater recognition.”

Chosen for her ongoing series “What Had Happened,” which captures notions of displacement, family history, and home in the Los Angeles neighborhoods where she grew up, Bowman will receive a $3,000 cash prize and have her work featured in an upcoming issue of Aperture magazine. An exhibition of her work was staged at Baxter St in January, 2021.
