Viewing Prix Pictet: Fire

This annual exhibition features the shortlisted entries for this year’s Prix Pictet, the world’s leading photography award committed to promoting discussion and debate on issues of sustainability and the environment.

On display are twelve series of photographs exploring the theme of fire by 13 international photographers based in five continents around the world. They span documentary, portraiture, landscape and collage, and draw inspiration from both global events and personal experiences.

Exhibition highlights include Sally Mann’s images of wildfires and thick smoke that engulfed the Great Dismal Swamp in Virginia in 2008 and Fabrice Monteiro’s The Prophecy, which explores worldwide pollution through staged photographs of figures in costumes made of rubbish and natural materials.

As disturbing as it is beautiful, this show is a good snapshot of what’s going on in contemporary photography — and the world.
