On Wednesday, January 22, over 100 invited guests gathered at Aperture Gallery for the finissage of Prix Pictet: Power. Prix Pictet Chairman Stephen Barber, Director Michael Benson, and Aperture Members and Trustees plus other special guests, were all in attendance.

Founded by Pictet, the Geneva-based wealth and asset management group in 2008, the Prix Pictet has rapidly established itself as the world’s leading prize in photography and sustainability. The award aims to uncover outstanding photography applied to confront the most pressing social and environmental challenges of today. The Prix Pictet: Power exhibition features this year’s shortlisted photographers and the winner, Luc Delahaye, who embrace this year’s theme of Power, with both awe-inspiring and disturbing images.
