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. Prix Pictet Fire, the ninth cycle of the Prix Pictet, presents work by 13 photographers from Austria, Belgium, Benin, Cambodia, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Switzerland, USA who have been shortlisted for this year’s prize.
Fire has hardly been out of the news since the inferno that consumed Notre Dame in Paris in early 2019. We have seen record rainforest blazes in the Amazon, forest and bush fires in Australia and conflagrations in California among many other ecological disasters.
The Prix Pictet tours each cycle of the award around the world, bringing the work of shortlisted photographers before a wide international audience. Fire will be exhibited at the School of the Arts (SOTA) in Singapore from 8-20 January 2023.
