Prix Pictet at the V&A

June 25, 2014

Last month we celebrated the launch of Prix Pictet at the V&A – The world’s premiere photography prize at the world’s greatest museum of art and design.

Working with Prix Pictet on their fifth cycle, Consumption, we designed the 132 page photography book, published by teNeues, that accompanied the exhibition.

The exhibition, seen by a staggering 18,000 people, showcased the work of 11 shortlisted photographers in response to the theme, Consumption. Honorary President, Kofi Annan was at the opening to announce German photographer Michael Schmidt the winner with his series Lebensmittel.

The theme of Consumption produced the most varied range of submissions to date, from Rineke Dijkstras’ Almerisa, a series capturing moments of a woman’s life from adolescence to adulthood, to Laurie Simmons’ The Love Doll, documenting her photographic relationship with a custom, high-end ‘Love Doll’ from Japan.
