Grand Prize Winner | OD Photo Prize 2022
The OD Photo Prize is an annual prize devoted to discovering and nurturing the next generation of photographic artists. Selected unanimously by our Judges as the Grand Prize Winner, Jono Terry’s They Still Owe Him a Boat explores the colonial legacy of Lake Kariba, and the dualities that are still present in broader contemporary Zimbabwean society.
Jono Terry (b. 1987, Zimbabwe) is a London based documentary photographer whose work is primarily focused on the post-colonial. His long-term photographic projects aim to both unpack and confront colonial history whilst offering insights into the continued legacy and ongoing impact it has on contemporary African society. Most recently he has been exploring the social history of Zimbabwe, the country of his birth, and the subsequent politics of belonging that remain since its independence in 1980. As a grandson of British immigrants to Rhodesia, he is interested in questioning his own belonging as a colonial legacy and navigating the complex landscape of white, Zimbabwean (African) identity. He is strongly motivated by creating a dialogue about the past in order to decolonise the present.
