Pablo E. Piovano and Ian Willms present their winning projects at Berlin’s f³ – freiraum für fotografie exhibition space; the showcase is open from August 28 to November 3, 2019.
Ian Willms (b. 1981, Canada) and Pablo E. Piovano (b. 1985, Argentina) have been selected as the winners of this year’s Greenpeace Photo Award. In their respective long-term projects, the photographers investigate the global issues of land rights, climate change and the impact of oil exploitation on indigenous communities.
In his series ‘Patagonia – Territory in Conflict’, Pablo E. Piovano documents a region that has experienced decades of conflicts over land, resources and indigenous rights. Piovano’s images juxtapose the unique beauty of Patagonia with the brutal struggle over its future.
In his project ‘As Long as the Sun Shines’, Ian Willms investigates the consequences of exploitative oil sands extraction in the Canadian province of Alberta. Compiled over a period of eight years, his photographic essay is a sensitive examination of the connection between economic recovery, global climate change and social injustice for the region’s indigenous population.
