Abstract

About the book:

The Prix Pictet Commission is an invitation for one of the photographers short-listed for the Prix Pictet, to document a sustainability project in a particular country or region.

For the third Commission, Chris Jordan took photographs on a fieldtrip to the Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy in Northern Kenya, an initiative led by tribal Elders, which aims to bring peace and prosperity to a region ravaged by violence and climate change. Jordan’s photographs both document the problems— particularly the poaching of elephants— and celebrate the heroes and triumphs of what he calls a “quiet revolution” aimed at building a sustainable future for this community.
