Deutsche Börse photography prize 2012 – in pictures

We have featured this prize before, now The Guardian shows the images again and provides a review by Adrian Searle

Pieter Hugo, Rinko Kawauchi, John Stezaker and Christopher Williams are the four photographers shortlisted for this year’s £30,000 Deutsche Börse photography prize. Their work goes on display at The Photographers’ Gallery from 13 July – 9 September 2012. View some of their images here

Adrian Searle: John Stezaker’s work is by miles the best here, with that great unteachable gift: an eye and a sensibility
