PLATFORM is pleased to announce Hannah Doucet as the winner of our inaugural 2017 PLATFORM Photography Award. This award includes a solo exhibition in Gallery 2, $1000, darkroom access and a one-year membership to PLATFORM.

The jury was excited by Doucet’s inquisitive and engaged practice, one that probes photography and the human condition in equal measure. We are looking forward to working with her for her upcoming show in March 2018!
