Coming soon: Fire

Pictet Prize

Twelve series of powerful photographs by 13 international photographers exploring the topical theme of ‘fire’ are presented in the exhibition Prix Pictet: Fire

“Fire has hardly been out of the news since the inferno that consumed Notre Dame in Paris in early 2019. We have seen record rainforest blazes in the Amazon, forest and bush fires in Australia and conflagrations in California. It is the fourth element. Fire destroys and it renews. Fire means survival, renewal, and economic prosperity. Yet our abuse of this most capricious of elements is the source of most of our environmental woes.”
