Publisher Comments:

The Prix Pictet Commission is an invitation for one of the photographers short-listed for the

Prix Pictet to document a sustainability project in a particular country or region. For the third

Commission, Chris Jordan took a fieldtrip to photograph the Nakuprat-Gotu Conservancy in Northern Kenya. It is an initiative led by tribal Elders, which aims to bring peace and prosperity to a region ravaged by violence and climate change. In an effort to draw attention to the potentials of sustainable living, Jordan's project both documents the problems--particularly the poaching of elephants--and celebrates the triumphs of what he calls a "quiet revolution" aimed at building a sustainable future for this community.

About the Author

Commonly referred to as the "it" artist of the green movement, Chris Jordan resigned from his career as a corporate attorney in order to fully engross himself in his much lauded art and cause: to produce works of art and photography that draw awareness to conservation and the dangers lurking in American consumerism. In 2011, Jordan was awarded the prestigious Prix Pictet prize and commissioned to document the existence of drought stricken communities in northern Kenya.
