DESCRIPTION

İstanbul Modern presents Prix Pictet, one of the most important photography prizes in the world. The aim of the prize is to use photography to raise public awareness worldwide to the environmental and social challenges of the new millennium. Featuring the work of 12 photographers who have been shortlisted for the fourth cycle, the exhibition this year focuses on the theme of 'Power'. Having a great creative reach, Power embraces contradiction. The same forces that result in disaster and despair can also generate hope and renewal.

Global tour of the exhibition that begins with exhibitions in London, Munich, Paris, Beirut and İstanbul ends in 2014 with an exhibition at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) San Diego.
