Disorder will be open to the public until the end of May.
Social unrest, political revolt and climate change are among the issues reflected in the photos in this exhibition, which will be at Palau Robert until 28 May. Disorder features the work of twelve world renowned photographers who have taken part in the 7th edition of the Prix Pictet global award in photography and sustainability, which was won by the French photographer Valérie Belin.
The exhibition, which is organised by the Prix Pictet group in collaboration with the Generalitat de Catalunya, has been on tour around various countries and Barcelona is its final stop. The perspective of the photos on display ranges from the clearly documentary to the poetic and abstract, as in the case of the winning series, titled Still Life.
The photographers represented in the exhibition are IIlit Azoulay, Matthew Brandt, Maxim Dondyuk, Alixandra Fazzina, Ori Gersht, John Gossage, Pieter Hugo, Gideon Mendel, Sophie Ristelhueber, Brent Stirton, Yang Yongliang and the prize-winner Valérie Belin. Their work was chosen from among more than 700 applicants. The Prix Pictet award was created in 2008 and has carved out a reputation for the contribution of its photographs to the debate on our most pressing social and environmental challenges. Winners of previous editions include Benoît Aquin, Nadav Kander, Mitch Epstein, Luc Delahaye and Michael Schmidt.
