Kraszna-Krausz Foundation Book Award

The House of the Seven Women book is on display at Photo London as one of the longisted titles for this year's Kraszna Krausz Foundation Book Award.

The Kraszna-Krausz Foundation was created by Andor Kraszna-Krausz, the founder of Focal Press.

Since 1985 the Kraszna-Krausz Foundation Book Awards have been the UK’s leading prizes for books on photography and the moving image. Winning books have been those which make original and lasting educational, professional, historical and cultural contributions to the field.

In addition to the Book Awards, the Foundation contributes to the First Book Award, in partnership with MACK. The recipient of this prize works alongside MACK to realise a monographic book project of previously unpublished work.

The Foundation also presents awards recognising an Outstanding Contribution to Publishing and a Fellowship in Photography.
