This summer, the Beirut Exhibition Center is once again hosting "Prix Pictet," an exhibition of images by the 11 photographers shortlisted for the fifth edition of the prize for photography and sustainability established in 2008 .This year more than 700 photographers from 66 countries were nominated for the award.Schmidt's winning photos are from a series called "Lebensmittel" (Groceries), taken between 2006 and 2010 . Some black-and-white, others in washed-out color, they capture food and the places it comes from in a series of close-ups, taken from unexpected angles that often make the images appear abstract at first glance. The clean lines and simple composition of Schmidt's images form a striking contrast to the chaotic series "Project Family," by Japanese photographer Motoyuki Daifu.As colorful as Daifu's work, Hao's photos are their antithesis in composition, transforming chaos into order. In "My Things," a series he began working on in 2001, he creates huge collages using scans of the everyday items lying around his house in Beijing. Eventually, Hao integrates hundreds of these scans into huge, colorful abstract collages.Particularly striking is British photographer Mishka Henner's series "Beef & Oil".American photographer Laurie Simmons' large photographs are perhaps the most immediately arresting in the exhibition.
