On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the most important photography award on the topic of sustainability, this volume presents the best pictures from the previous winners, as well as a curated selection of particularly impressive photographs on various topics. For ten years, Prix Pictet has been inviting artists to tackle multi-faceted themes on the topic of sustainability. During its first decade, some 4,200 photographers have presented over 28,000 images to the jury, and the public has enjoyed 92 exhibitions in 40 cities across the world. Each of the seven cycles has unearthed powerful images that speak to today's vast environmental, societal, and cultural challenges. Featuring work from all of the winning photographers to date--Benoit Aquin, Nadav Kander, Mitch Epstein, Luc Delahaye, Michael Schmidt, Valerie Belin, and Richard Mosse--and many of the shortlisted artists, ten is a celebration of the outstanding photography that has been showcased by the Prix Pictet over the past decade. Readers embark on a poignant visual journey through a carefully curated selection of compelling images, venturing into a world defined by our complex relationship with our environment. The photographs, some of which have not previously been published or exhibited by the Prix Pictet, have been grouped into twelve themes. Photojournalistic or conceptual in nature, the images are fantastically diverse and tell a powerful story of some of the most critical problems facing modern society. 70 colour and 18 b/w photographs
