Edition 2018


Closed on 23 September 2018
Launched by the Pictet Group in 2008 the Prix Pictet has steadily grown in prominence to the point where it is now regarded as one of the world’s leading photography prizes. The first seven cycles of the award have uncovered outstanding photography applied to some of the most pressing environmental and social challenges of our times. Within the broad theme of sustainability each cycle of the Prix Pictet has a specific theme. The seven themes to date have been Water, Earth, Growth, Power, Consumption, Disorder and Space. To celebrate achievements of its first ten years The Prix Pictet and the Rencontres d’Arles will present a special exhibition and screening devoted to the seven winners of the award to date. The retrospective exhibition will feature works from the prize winning series by the seven Prix Pictet winners: Benoît Aquin, The Chinese Dust Bowl; Valérie Belin, Still Life, 2014; Luc Delahaye, Mitch Epstein, American Power; Nadav Kander, Yangtze, The Long River; Richard Mosse, Heat Maps, and Michael Schmidt, Lebensmittel.

Exhibition produced by the Prix Pictet.
In collaboration with the Pictet Group, Prix Pictet Photography Collection.
