The Deutsche Börse photography prize is now showing at the Photographers Gallery. My favourite nominee is Cristina de Middel. Her project 'The Afronauts' explores the short-lived Zambian space programme of 1964, which was instigated by a schoolteacher, Edward Makuka Nkoloso, with the goal of sending an African to Mars. Her book 'Afronauts' sells for over £500 on eBay and £1000 on Amazon! So go and see the real thing while you have the chance...
