Dedicated to the Arctic and chaired by Jean Jouzel, and under the patronage of Minister Ségolène Royal, French Ambassador for the Arctic and Antarctic Poles, the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award was awarded to Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir Van Lohuizen (NOOR).

Their investigative photoreportage «Arctic: New Frontier» is a pioneering double expedition which explores the effects of climate change on the entire Arctic territory. They want to experience the dramatic transformation of natural landscapes and the demographics in the Arctic, and the impact of these changes on the lives of the region’s inhabitants.

“The photos of Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen are superb. Through them, from Siberia, Svalbard and Greenland to Canada and Alaska, we discover the Arctic of today, with its landscapes and wildlife that are drawing a growing number of tourists, as well as its populations who are exposed to extreme climates and who mine resources such as nickel and, increasingly, gas, oil and coal. Protecting the environment does not appear central to their activity, to put it mildly.”
— Jean Jouzel, climatologist, winner of the 2012 Vetlesen Award and co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Award as Director of the IPCC

For the very first time, two photojournalists have simultaneously covered the irreversible changes that have taken place in the Arctic, to bear witness to the effects of the melting of the ice-caps.

The forces of tourism, militarisation, exploitation of gas and mineral resources, and the opening of trade routes mean that the Arctic is today the site of clashes between countries and multinationals who are locked in a chaotic competition for control of these zones, which have taken on strategic importance in the history of humankind due to the effects of global warming.

The photographs in “Arctic: New Frontier” by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen are an alarming testimony to the speed of transformation in the region and the upheavals that are taking place on a global scale.

Sharing with the Fondation Carmignac the values of openness and support for creation, the Cité is pleased to present the photographic exhibition “Arctic: New Frontier” which resonates fully with its missions to raise awareness of respect for the environment and biodiversity.

Carmignac Photojournalism Award : In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to support photographers in the field. Directed by Emeric Glayse, it funds annually the production of an investigative photo reportage on human rights violations, geostrategic and environmental issues in the world. Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives a grant, enabling them to carry out in-depth research on the ground, with logistical support from Fondation Carmignac. The latter presents a travelling exhibition and the publication of a monograph upon their return. At the end of each edition, four photographs bequeathed by the laureates are included in the Carmignac collection.

Previous editions have focused on Gaza (Kai Wiedenhöfer – 1st edition), Pashtunistan (Massimo Berruti – 2nd edition), Zimbabwe (Robin Hammond – 3rd edition), Chechnya (Davide Monteleone – 4th edition), Iran (Newsha Tavakolian – 5th edition), French Guiana (Christophe Gin – 6th edition), Libya (Narciso Contreras – 8th edition), Nepal (Lizzie Sadin – 8th edition) and the Arctic (Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen – 9th edition).

The exhibition is accompanied by a bilingual French-English catalogue co-published by Reliefs and Fondation Carmignac. It will be available from 07 November 2018.
