Prix Pictet 09
- A varied examination of the work of 43 photographers, taken during the time of the Corona crisis
- Images that will remain in the memory beyond the current situation
- With essays by historian Peter Frankopan and novelist Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi
During the Covid 19 pandemic and the lockdown many artists were thrown back on themselves and started to work creatively with this unprecedented situation. Shortlist artists from all over the world were asked by the Prix Pictet, the leading award for photography and sustainability, and by British daily newspaper, The Guardian, to show their works from the months of the Corona crisis. The result, Confinement, a complex artistic and cultural portrait of this state of emergency, will remain, when the pandemic itself is history.
