12 - 27 November 2010
The shortlist for the third Prix Pictet was announced on 10 November 2010 at the opening of a preview exhibition at Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire, Paris. The exhibition ran from 12 to 27 November and coincided with Paris Photo 2010 (18-21 November).
The exhibition featured work from each of the twelve shortlisted artists and was a prelude to the portfolio exhibition at the Passage de Retz, Paris in March 2011 where the winner of the third Prix Pictet will be announced.
The theme for the third cycle of the Prix Pictet is Growth. At once a blessing and a curse, Growth, in all its forms, embodies one of the great conundrums facing humanity in the early decades of the twenty-first century. It has presented a rich creative challenge to the nominated photographers.
