French luxury group Kering has selected Liz Johnson Artur as the winner of its 2021 Women in Motion Award for photography, in recognition of the Russian-Ghanaian’s work featuring the African diaspora around the world. “What I’m interested in is people — the ones I don’t see represented anywhere,” Johnson Artur said in a statement. The award of 25,000 euros is part of Kering’s partnership with photography festival Les Rencontres d’Arles, where Johnson Artur’s work will be shown in July. Kering has been expanding its Women in Motion program in recent years and added the photography award in 2019. Previous winners include Susan Meiselas and Sabine Weiss, notes WWD.
