We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition “Arctic: New Frontier,” by 9th edition laureates Yuri Kozyrev and Kadir van Lohuizen (NOOR), at Saatchi Gallery in London on March 15th!

Open to the public until May 5th, this pioneering double polar expedition chronicles the journey of photojournalists Yuri and Kadir as they document the irreversible impact climate change has had on the entire Arctic territory. The exhibition of over 50 photographs and 6 videos “provides a masterful and salutary insight into one of the major challenges of the coming years” (L’Express, November 15th, 2018).

Displayed at London’s Saatchi Gallery, which has been hosting the Carmignac Photojournalism Award for the fifth consecutive year, “Arctic: New Frontier” 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.

Admission for "Arctic: New Frontier" is free.

About the Carmignac Photojournalism Award:
The 9th Edition of the Carmignac Photojournalism Award supports an investigative photojournalism report that will shed light on the challenges facing the Arctic and that will highlight the consequences climate change might have on the planet.

In 2009, while media and photojournalism faced an unprecedented crisis, Edouard Carmignac created the Carmignac Photojournalism Award to sup- port 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.

About the Fondation Carmignac:
Created in 2000 under the initiative of Édouard Carmignac, Fondation Carmignac is a corporate foundation with two main strands: an art collection of close to 300 works, and the annual Carmignac Photojournalism Award. Villa Carmignac, an exhibition space on Porquerolles Island in Southern France, showcases the collection and hosts a programme of cultural and artistic activities.

SEVENTY YEARS OF SUFFOCATION - Tanya Habjouqa with Amnesty International

Photo by Tanya Habjouqa/ NOOR

2018 marks 70 years since the expulsion and displacement of more than 700,000 Palestinians from their homes, villages and cities during the one-year conflict that created Israel in 1948. Since then, the Nakba (catastrophe), as it is known in Arabic to Palestinians, has been engraved in Palestinian collective consciousness as a story of relentless dispossession.

We are proud to share this new digital plateform where NOOR's Tanya Habjouqa collaborated together Amnesty International in producing this immersive photo-story on 70 years of Palestinian displacement.
