The Prix Pictet 2009


The Prix Pictet returns for its second year, offering a prize for photography on the subject of sustainability. Last year featured a stunning shortlist, and this one’s just as good. The theme this year is ‘earth’, following last year’s ‘water’.

My own favourite is Sammy Baloji’s juxtapositions of historic photographs over the decaying industrial landscapes of his native Congo.
