20th Anniversary Prix HSBC pour la Photographie : Yoshiko Murakami, 1999 Winner


For the fourth edition of the Prix HSBC pour la Photographie (then known at the Prix de la Fondation CCF pour la photographie), Alain Mingam former photo editor-in-chief of Sygma, Gamma and Figaro, served as the art advisor. Two women won the prize that year, Catherine Gfeller and Yoshiko Murakami, Swiss and Japanese, retrospectively.
