From straightforward photojournalism to intimate social photography, from exploration of cultural and local complexities to documentations of contemporary history: Philippe Chancel (France), Anders Petersen (Sweden), Walid Raad/The Atlas Group (Lebanon) and Fiona Tan Indonesia, the shortlisted nominees of the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2007, impress by very different works.

While Philippe Chancel captures the all-encompassing aesthetic of communist ideology in North Korea as well as the finely orchestrated details of daily propaganda, Anders Petersen turns to the hidden aspects of human nature on the fringes of society.
