CARMIGNAC PHOTOJOURNALISM AWARD – 9th EDITION
EXHIBITION AT THE SAATCHI GALLERY, LONDON
Arctic: New Frontier by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen
March 15 – May 5, 2019
FREE ADMISSION

Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (NOOR) were awarded the 9th edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award 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 endowment allowed them to carry out their pioneer double polar expedition «Arctic: New Frontier». For the very first time, two photojournalists have simultaneously covered the entire Arctic territory to bear witness to the irreversible effects of climate change. They wanted 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 engaged in the exploitation of mining 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

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.

Each year, at the end of the five-month photo reportage in the selected area, the work of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award Laureate is used to produce both a major exhibition in Paris and London, and the publication of a monograph.

After taking place at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie, in Paris, the exhibition of over 50 photographs and 6 videos by Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen, which “provides a masterful and salutary insight into one of the major challenges of the coming years” (L’Express, November 15th, 2018), will be displayed from March 15 to May 5 2019 at London’s Saatchi Gallery, which has been hosting the Carmignac Photojournalism Award for the fifth consecutive year.


The exhibition is accompanied by a bilingual French-English catalogue co-published by Fondation Carmignac and Reliefs Editions. It will be available at the Saatchi Gallery bookstore and throughout the network of bookstores in the UK and Europe.

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 and geostrategic issues in the world. Selected by an international jury, the laureate receives a 50.000€ grant, enabling them to carry out an in-depth research in the field, 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 10th edition is dedicated to the Amazon and will address issues related to its deforestation. The laureate will be announced at the festival Visa pour l’Image, Perpignan, in September 2019.
