Anaïs Oudart

Prix Caritas Photo Sociale

The Prix Caritas Photo Sociale was awarded to Anaïs Oudart for her series Héroïnes 17. This work documents the difficulties of young women from child welfare services to build themselves alone, without parents or family. Their journey leads them to know very early on situations of precarious housing or wandering and other social difficulties. This series presents portraits of women in their reintegration journey, who have to fight harder than others to try to reach the same level. Anaïs Oudart made a portrait and an interview of each of them in a collaborative process, leaving them free to express what they wanted to share. The number 17 refers to this pivotal age where Anaïs was able to see many cases of rupture.

Eriko Inazaki


The 2023 LOEWE FOUNDATION Craft Prize was awarded to Japanese ceramicist Eriko Inazaki. Her winning work, a ceramic piece titled Metanoia, 2019, is a captivating orb covered in fine, plant and flower-like extrusions, each intricately made by pinching the clay by hand. The jury commented on Inazaki’s exceptional take on ornamentation in ceramics. This year's honourable mentions went to Dominique Zinkpè from Benin for his wall sculpture The Watchers, and Moe Watanabe, a Japanese artist whose work Transfer Surface uses salvaged walnut bark to construct its naturalistic box form.
