DGPh Award: Paolo Pellegrin Receives MM

The Italian photographer Paolo Pellegrin has been awarded (in German) the Dr. Erich Salomon Prize from the German Photographic Association (DGPh). The award ceremony took place on October 12 in the Raum für Fotografie Zephyr, Mannheim. The prize is awarded in honor of Dr. Erich Salomon, the great photographer of the Weimar Republic. Since 1971, it is presented each year for "exemplary use of photography in journalism". Leica Camera is proud partner of the award. Alfred Schopf, CEO, awarded Paolo Pellegrin with an engraved Leica M Monochrom. Pellegrin is a member of Magnum and has received numerous awards, including ten World Press Photo Awards.

You may recall that Paolo Pellgrin stirred some controversy when he suddenly found himself under intense scrutiny in the photo blog world after a picture he took in Rochester, NY that won him 2nd at POYi, 2nd at WPP and 1st as Photographer Of The Year was deemed to not show what it purports to show by Michael Shaw and co-contributors at BagNewNotes.
