The Prix Pictet Japan Award aims to discover young Japanese photographers whose work carries strong messages on global sustainability. Supported by the Prunier Foundation the Prix Pictet inaugurated this special prize in 2015 recognising Japan’s status as one of the great centres of world photography.
This exhibition presents the works of the two Prix Pictet Japan winners Tomoko Kikuchi and Lieko Shiga alongside four highly commended artists from the shortlist cycles: Kazuma Obara, Keiko Sasaoka, Daisuke Yokota and Shiho Yoshida. Collectively, these six artists present a powerful testament to the fragile state of the planet.
