Sally Mann wins Prix Pictet 2021

Share:

The winner of the 9th Prix Pictet has been announced: Sally Mann (b. 1951 in Lexington, Virginia) stands to receive a cash prize of 100,000 Swiss Francs (USD 108,000 / €91,000).

The winning series, Blackwater (2008-2012), is a multi-layered exploration of the wildfires that enveloped the Great Dismal Swamp in south-eastern Virginia – the very place where the first slave ships docked in America. The project draws parallels between this devastating natural catastrophe and racial conflict in the USA.

The shortlist also featured Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige (Lebanon), Rinko Kawauchi (Japan), Christian Marclay (USA/Switzerland), Fabrice Monteiro (Belgium/Benin), Lisa Oppenheim (USA), Mak Remissa (Cambodia), Carla Rippey (Mexico), Mark Ruwedel (USA), Brent Stirton (South Africa), David Uzochukwu (Austria/Nigeria), and Daisuke Yokota (Japan).

The announcement was made on December 15, 2021 at the award ceremony at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A). The finalists’ exhibition, comprising all shortlisted works, is on show at the V&A until January 9, 2022.
