23 May 2014 – Source-to-table food project takes Prix Pictet photography prize

Michael Schmidt won the Prix Pictet photography prize for his 5 year project on how food gets to the table. The theme of the prize this year was consumption. You can see the exhibition – which includes the work of all eleven finalists – at London’s V&A from 22 May – 14 June and you can read more about it here.

There is also an interesting related piece written by Slavoj Žižek about consumption and cultural capitalism – worth reading.
