Join Aperture and Prix Pictet, the global award in photography and sustainability, for the opening reception of Power. The theme of power has enormous creative reach, embracing both hope and despair in equal measure. Over two hundred nominators worldwide recommended almost 650 photographers from seventy-six countries, many of whom presented images that are both awe-inspiring and disturbing.

French photographer Luc Delahaye is this year’s winner. The shortlist includes photographers Robert Adams (United States), Daniel Beltrá (Spain/United States), Mohamed Bourouissa (Algeria/France), Philippe Chancel (France), Edmund Clark (United Kingdom), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium), Rena Effendi (Azerbaijan/Egypt), Jacqueline Hassink (the Netherlands), An-My Lê (Vietnam/United States), Joel Sternfeld (United States), and Guy Tillim (South Africa).
