Prix Pictet 2019: Hope

The world’s leading prize for photography and sustainability

This exhibition is now closed at V&A South Kensington

In its eighth cycle, the theme for 2019's prize was 'Hope'. Revealing how a mood of optimism can drive us towards change, the twelve shortlisted photographers had their work exhibited in the V&A's Porter Gallery.

Perhaps in our ability to carry on in adversity lies hope for us all.

Kofi Annan (1938 – 2018), Honorary Founding President of Prix Pictet
