Now in its eighth year and fast gathering steam, the Prix Pictet is shaping up as one of the most remarkable competitions in international photography. It was founded in 2008 by the Geneva-based Banque Pictet to promote issues around sustainability and consumerism; but far from enaging in sanctimonious finger-wagging, the photos bring the theme alive with startling, dreamlike imagery. This year's crop is on display at the Beirut Exibition Center for one month only – don't miss it.
