Marco Zorzanello has been announced as the winner of the 6Mois Photojournalism Prize 2020.
230 photographers from 41 countries entered their work for the 6Mois Photojournalism Prize, which was awarded for the first time this year. The jury compiled a shortlist of 12 finalists, before choosing Marco Zorzanello’s series ‘Le tourisme à l’époque du changement climatique’ (Tourism in the Age of Climate Change) as the winning project. The Italian photographer stands to receive 10,000 euros in prize money.
Marco Zorzanello (born 1979 in Vicenza) has been documenting the relationship between mass tourism and climate change since 2015. In his work he confronts viewers with the absurdities of the tourism industry – picturing holiday-makers skiing on artificial snow in the Dolomites, frolicking in luxury pools next to the dwindling Dead Sea, or buying pieces of the last remaining icebergs for five dollars each.
By showing up the ludicrous realities of tourism as a consumerist pursuit, Zorzanello takes an intelligent, distanced and humorous approach to questioning the way we travel.
