Prix Pictet – 06 – Disorder


  • The Prix Pictet aims to harness the power of photography – all genres of photography – to draw global attention to issues of sustainability, especially those concerning the environment. In its sixth cycle since inception in 2008 the Prix Pictet turns a spotlight onto the theme of Disorder. This cycle has again attracted a remarkably diverse range of works by artists who confront us with the many facets of Disorder – from the failure of nation states and civil unrest to the devastation we have visited upon the climate and the natural world. For this cycle our network of 260 nominators worldwide recommended 700 photographers and, after a rich debate, the independent Jury shortlisted 12 artists. This book presents their portfolios, together with outstanding individual images by photographers from the wider nomination. As an ensemble, they depict a world which is, as Kofi Annan writes in his foreword, “defined by Disorder – disorder, at the very moment in human history when we almost dared imagine that no problem was beyond our capacity to solve.”
