TWELVE PHOTOGRAPHERS FROM FOUR CONTINENTS ON PRIX PICTET ‘POWER’ SHORTLIST

Jacqueline Hassink is one of twelve artists, shortlisted for the fourth cycle of the Prix Pictet, the world’s leading prize in photography.
The finalists’ exhibition will be held at the Saatchi Gallery in London in October. The exhibition will run from 10 – 28 October 2012.

The Shortlist is drawn from ten countries on four continents: Algeria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, France, Netherlands, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.

Each year the award is centred on a distinct theme. The fourth theme of the Prix Pictet is Power, a theme with enormous breadth, embracing contradiction and paradox in equal measure that has uncovered images and issues that are both awe-inspiring and disturbing.

The winner of the fourth Prix Pictet will be announced by Kofi Annan, Honorary President of the Prix Pictet, on Tuesday 9 October, at the opening of the finalists’ exhibition of the shortlisted works at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
