The Prix Pictet is the world’s largest photography prize in the field of sustainability, using photographs to convey messages of sizeable global significance to a widespread audience. For each cycle of the Prix Pictet there is a distinct sustainability theme. The theme for the fourth Prix Pictet is Power.
At times a paradoxical topic, Power has the ability to portray both negative and positive aspects of human impact on the planet. Political power affects millions including future generations, while power of the natural world is awesome, beautiful and destructive.
Following the opening in London, the Power exhibition embarked on a global tour and has so far visited Munich, Paris, Budapest, Istanbul, Dublin, Amsterdam, Beirut, and Zurich. The exhibition at Artstation will be the first time photographs by artists shortlisted for the prize have been shown in Tel Aviv. Following Tel Aviv, Power will travel to Aperture Gallery in New York and the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego.
The twelve photographers who’s work will be on show are Robert Adams (United States), Daniel Beltrá (Spain/United States), Mohamed Bourouissa (Algeria/France), Philippe Chancel (France), Edmund Clark (United Kingdom), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium), Luc Delahaye (France), Rena Effendi (Azerbaijan), Jacqueline Hassink (The Netherlands), An-My Lê (United States/Vietnam), Joel Sternfeld (United States) and Guy Tillim (South Africa).
