Esko Männikkö has been awarded the prize for his retrospective exhibit "Cocktails 1990-2007" shown at Millesgarden, Stockholm.

“I am a photographer of fish, dogs and old men”, Männikkö once said.
Bringing to attention stories which carry a universal poignancy,
Männikkö shows us a world where animals, objects and people are all
portrayed and treated with the same mutual respect and childlike wonder.
