The Prix Pictet is the world’s leading prize for photography and sustainability. Its purpose is to harness the power of photography to draw global attention to critical sustainability issues that threaten humanity- and the planet that we share with the rest of the natural world. The ninth cycle of the award takes the theme of Fire.

Over 600 photographers were nominated for this photography prize by a global network of nominators. After a rich debate the international jury arrived at a final shortlist of 13 artists, now being presented at Asia Society Hong Kong Center.

As a group, the 13 artists appearing in this cycle present fire as the most capricious of the elements – the bringer of life but also the author of terrifying destruction. Their work is a vision of what lies ahead: not only what has been but what is to come.

Since opening its doors in 2012, Asia Society has hosted a variety of arts and culture, business and policy programming and exhibitions for the wider community in Hong Kong.
