The global award in photography and sustainability

It was with immense sadness that we learned of the death of Michael Wolf.

Our sincere condolences to his family. A consistently outstanding photographer, Wolf was twice shortlisted for the Prix Pictet – for Architecture of Density (Growth) and Tokyo Compression (Space).


The theme for the eighth cycle of the Prix Pictet is Hope a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet's overriding theme of sustainability. Hope in the face of adversity. Recycling. Reforestation. Rewilding. Science – advances in medicine – and technological solutions for global environmental problems. Falling poverty levels. It is time to examine some of the positive actions on sustainability that are beginning to emerge by contrast with the alarming analysis that constantly assails us in the global media.
