For ten years, Prix Pictet has been inviting artists to tackle multi-faceted themes on the topic of sustainability. During its first decade, some 4,200 photographers have presented over 28,000 images to the jury, and the public has enjoyed 92 exhibitions in 40 cities across the world. Each of the seven cycles has unearthed powerful images that speak to today’s vast environmental, societal, and cultural challenges. Featuring work from all of the winning photographers to date—Benoit Aquin, Nadav Kander, Mitch Epstein, Luc Delahaye, Michael Schmidt, Valérie Belin, and Richard Mosse—and many of the shortlisted artists, ten is a celebration of the outstanding photography that has been showcased by the Prix Pictet over the past decade. Readers embark on a poignant visual journey through a carefully curated selection of compelling images, venturing into a world defined by our complex relationship with our environment. The photographs, some of which have not previously been published or exhibited by the Prix Pictet, have been grouped into twelve themes. Photojournalistic or conceptual in nature, the images are fantastically diverse and tell a powerful story of some of the most critical problems facing modern society.

Make a difference when you travel. Excellent hospitality and sustainable journeys can go hand in hand. New getaways offer amazing design, delicious food and extraordinary experiences while committing to an eco-friendly ­experience for travellers and locals alike.

Bon Voyage gives a privileged insight into the shift towards eco-conscious getaways. Relax, enjoy … and make a positive impact!

Wild Naked is a portrait of a millennial woman: part of a generation empowered to explore, think, act and feel freely… The female youth of today. Wild Naked is a visual road trip exploring, nature, youth, adventures, parties, love, friendship and solitude through the eyes of Magdalena Wosinska, a highly sought-after photographer based in California. Travelling and working around the world, Wosinska connects with her surroundings and explores herself both inside and out, documenting it through images. Her dynamic day-to-day is captured together with self-portraits in nature’s most breathtaking landscapes. Discovering her own power is the most revolutionary road to freedom. Being naked, engaging with other bodies and embracing her own life. Stripping back to essentials allows for a deep reflexion about identity―hers is the experience of a lifetime, and the portrait of a whole generation of self-determined women.

Founded in a small town in Bavaria, Germany, the adidas brand has, for nearly a century, been outfitting international sports stars and pop culture icons such as David Beckham, Zinédine Zidane, and Run-DMC as well as everyday men, women, and children across the globe. The story of this evolution—illustrated with numerous historic photographs—is entwined with history, corporate trends, and the emergence of sports as a major factor in the world economy. Starting with the beginnings of the original Dassler brothers’ company in the time of the Weimar Republic and National Socialism, this book reveals the first academically-based look at the history of the family and the adidas company which was officially founded in 1949 after the brothers' separation. Using a worldwide range of sources, the authors also examine brand strategies and globalization since the 1960s. Since its beginnings, the name 'adidas' has been shrouded in legend and, in this special look at the rise of a global company, readers will learn the true story behind the brand.
