From the publisher: "From a list of over 80 nominations, the Jury has selected four finalists whose work has made a significant contribution to the medium of photography in the past year. This year the shortlist of Robert Adams, Peter Fraser, David Goldblatt and Joel Sternfeld brings together a group of photographers whose influence resonates through contemporary practice. Now in its eighth year, the Prize has become one of the most prestigious international arts awards. Past winners of this £20,000 Prize include Richard Billingham, Andreas Gursky, Boris Mikhailov and Rineke Dijkstra. In 2003, Juergen Teller, one of the most successful photographers of the last decade, won for his collection of work, Märchenstüberl.
The jury of the Citigroup Photography Prize 2004 have chosen the work of four photographers who may not be well-known to the general public, but have been some of the most influential artists working in documentary photography. Over the last 30 years Robert Adams, Peter Fraser, David Goldblatt and Joel Sternfeld have made important bodies of work that have been a major influence on generations of photographers who came to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s. They are in many respects 'photographers' photographers' who have not yet received the public recognition that their influence or work warrants."
