3D tour of Prix Pictet-Fire

Prix Pictet Fire features other established photographers including Rinko Kawauchi who photographed firework displays throughout Japan every summer from 1997-2001 and Christian Marclay whose series of photographic prints began as small-scale collages featuring fragments from comic books, movie stills and images found on the internet. They are joined by young and emerging names in photography, including David Uzochukwu, whose portraiture series In The Wake is set within an unknown landscape on fire, and Fabrice Monteiro, whose series The Prophecy addresses worldwide pollution through staged photographs of figures in costumes made of trash and natural materials.
The winner of Prix Pictet Fire is the American photographer Sally Mann who was presented with the award in December 2021 at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum for her series Blackwater (2008-2012).
