Synopsis: 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 a fieldtrip to photograph the Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy in Northern Kenya. It is an initiative led by tribal Elders, which aims to bring peace and prosperity to a region ravaged by violence and climate change. In an effort to draw attention to the potentials of sustainable living, Jordan's project both documents the problems--particularly the poaching of elephants--and celebrates the triumphs of what he calls a "quiet revolution" aimed at building a sustainable future for this community.

About the Author: Commonly referred to as the "it" artist of the green movement, Chris Jordan resigned from his career as a corporate attorney in order to fully engross himself in his much lauded art and cause: to produce works of art and photography that draw awareness to conservation and the dangers lurking in American consumerism. In 2011, Jordan was awarded the prestigious Prix Pictet prize and commissioned to document the existence of drought stricken communities in northern Kenya.

Book Description Kempen: teNeues Verlag, 2011. 0. ISBN: 9783832796174. H 284 x B 235 mm. 104 Seiten mit sehr zahlreichen farbigen Fotos, überwiegend ganz- bzw. teilweise anderthalb-seitig. Mittelseite beidseitig aufklappbar. Text: deutsch, englisch, französisch. Graues Originalganzleinen mit weißgeprägtem Rücken- und graugeprägtem Deckeltitel, farbig illustrierten Vorsätzen und farbig illustriertem OUmschlag. Gebundene Auusgabe. Minimalste Randläsuren der OUmschlagskanten. Sonst sehr guter Zustand, verlagsfrsiches Exemplar. Diese Buch enthält Fotografien, die Chris Jordan auf einer vor Kurzem unternommenen Exkursion durch den Norden Kenias aufgenommen hat, wo Pictet den Tusk Trust darin unterstützt, das Nakuprat-Gotu-Naturschutzgebiet zu entwickeln - eine von den Stammesältesten geleitete Initiative, die es sich zum Ziel gesetzt hat, einer von Gewalt und den Folgen des Klimawandels heimgesuchten Region Frieden und wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung zu bringen. Jordans Fotografien dokumentieren die Probleme - insbesondere die Wilderei von Elefanten, die ihrer Stoßzähne wegen getötet werden -, und sie lassen die Helden und Triumphe der in seinen Worten "stillen Revolution" hochleben, dessen Ziel der Aufbau einer nachhaltigen Zukunft für diese Gemeinschaft ist. - Beiliegend: Anschreiben der Pictet-Bank (Niederlassung Frankfurt) zu diesem Projekt/Bildband, das als Geschenk übergeben wurde. Graues Originalganzleinen mit weißgeprägtem Rücken- und graugeprägtem Deckeltitel, farbig illustrierten Vorsätzen und farbig illustriertem OUmschlag. Gebundene Auusgabe.
