This image, entitled “Farewell” is from Sebastian Copeland and is one of many works from eighteen artists who are entered in The Prix Pictet, an exhibition and global prize in photography that focuses on sustainability.

The theme for 2008 is water.

There has been much talk about climate change. But not much about where we will see its first impact: water.

Flooding. Drought. Contamination. Water is the vector of climate change. By 2010 an estimated 40 per cent of the world’s poorest people will lack access to clean water. Two hundred million may be physically or economically displaced. This is not the future. This is now.

The winner will be announced November 8 in Paris. Be sure to check out each of the artists and their work.
