It is with great honour to announce Klaus Thymann has been nominated for Prix Pictet. Created in 2008, the Prix Pictet has rapidly established itself as the world’s leading prize in photography and sustainability. It was founded with the aim of uncovering outstanding photography applied to confront the most pressing social and environmental challenges of today. This year’s theme is ‘Space’ and entry is by nomination only.
Klaus Thymann’s nomination is in recognition for his on going work within Project Pressure, a project he started in 2008 in order to highlight the impacts of climate change. This nomination draws focus upon Thymann’s work towards filling the space between cause and effect and looking at how Project Pressure bridges the gap between action and impact that is so urgently needed.
Thymann is passionate about the environment and investigating how we can stem issues caused by climate change. He believes art can make a difference and be a positive touchpoint with audiences, which can inspire engagement with an otherwise difficult subject.
