Photos on sustainability

We read and hear so much in the news and scientific journals about the effects of climate change, however  we don’t seem to see many images that show the effects of the changing climate except for the usual images of icebergs melting.  This is where the Prix Pictet plays a role.

Never heard of the Prix Pictet? Nor had we until today, but after visiting their website and viewing the amazing photos,  we felt that this was a resource to be shared with our readers. The Prix Pictet is a major new global prize in photography that focuses on sustainability. It will have a yearly theme and the one for 2008 is: water.    Read more about this prize here.

The jury has already decided on the 2008 shortlist and the photos can be viewed here.

Click on the artist’s name to view a collection of their photos.  Enjoy!
