The Jerwood/Photoworks Awards support photographers, or artists using photography, to make new work and significantly develop their practice. The Awards particularly seek to encourage artists and photographers exploring new approaches to photography, and/or whose practice is experimental. The two chosen artists were selected from over 450 submissions in response to an open call to UK-based photography practitioners within 10 years of establishing their practice.

Silvia Rosi's project is partially inspired by the West African studio portrait and also includes a visual deconstruction of head carrying techniques, a practice with its own histories, skills, rituals and aesthetics, and a strong connection to Silvia’s own family history.

Theo Simpson's work navigates between real and imagined worlds. Created as self-contained pieces, the works are made by both hand and machine, principally incorporating various photographic and engineering techniques alongside a combination of other mediums and disciplines such as sculpture, drawing and printmaking.
