The winner of the 2014 Aimia | AGO Photography Prize is Lisa Oppenheim

 Smoke, 2013. Video still
Lisa Oppenheim creates photographs and videos that connect historical imagery and techniques with the present moment. She employs materials such as negatives – fabric, lace, slices of wood – directly recording the objects’ specific textures to create near-abstract compositions. Oppenheim gives photographic images new forms and new contexts.
