The work of the photographers shortlisted for the Prix Pictet, though diverse, is impressive indeed. If you’re in Paris between 17 March and 16 April 2011 it is certainly recommended that you stop by the exhibition of photos by this year’s shortlisted photographers at the Passage de Retz Gallery in the Marais (9 rue Charlot, 75003, +33.1.48.04.37.99).
Here is a description of the Prix Pictet from the official site:
Launched in 2008 by the Geneva-based private bank Pictet & Cie, the Prix Pictet has rapidly established itself as the world’s leading prize in photography and sustainability. It has a unique mandate – to use the power of photography to communicate vital messages to a global audience. The goal is to uncover art of the highest order, applied to confront the pressing social and environmental challenges of the new millennium.
The theme of the first Prix Pictet was Water, and the second Prix Pictet was Earth. The third cycle of the award will focus on the theme of Growth. At once a blessing and a curse, Growth, in all its forms, presents one of the great conundrums facing humanity in the early decades of the twenty-first century.
