The third Prix Pictet Commission. With a foreword by HRH The Duke of Cambridge and essays by philosopher Nigel Warburton and Financial Times correspondent Katrina Manson. This moving series will fascinate everyone interested in photojournalism and sustainability. The Prix Pictet Commission is an invitation for one of the photographers short-listed for the Prix Pictet, to document a sustainability project in a particular country or region. For the third Commission, Chris Jordan took photographs on a fieldtrip to the Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy in Northern Kenya, an initiative led by tribal Elders, which aims to bring peace and prosperity to a region ravaged by violence and climate change. Jordan's photographs both document the problems-- particularly the poaching of elephants-- and celebrate the heroes and triumphs of what he calls a "quiet revolution" aimed at building a sustainable future for this community.
