Prix Pictet: FIRE
For the ninth time, the Prix Pictet honours the most impressive photo series on topics that move our world.
A brilliant testimony to the art of photography for all those interested in sustainability, climate change and biodiversity.
After the award ceremony and exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London in December 2021, New York and other cities will follow.
Fire is the fourth element, fire destroys, creates something new - and its existential threat is as omnipresent as it is incomprehensible: the fire of Notre-Dame de Paris, forests in flames from the Amazon to Australia, devastating conflagrations in California. Reason enough for the Prix Pictet, the world's leading award for photography and sustainability, to focus on the many facets of the subject of fire in its latest book of photographs.
The proposals for the visually stunning selection from the ranks of international photo artists were provided by over 300 renowned photography experts from all over the world.
From the shortlist of nominees and other outstanding individual images, this impressive illustrated book curates over 100 masterpieces of contemporary photography.
