A major exhibition devoted to the work of the 12 shortlisted photographers for the fourth Prix Pictet will go on show at the Saatchi Gallery in London from 10 – 28 October 2012.

The winner of the 100,000 Swiss franc Prix Pictet will be announced by Kofi Annan, Honorary President of the Prix Pictet, at the opening reception on Tuesday 9 October.

The artist chosen by the Partners of Pictet & Cie to carry out the Prix Pictet Commission will also be announced.

The exhibition will feature the work of: Robert Adams (United States, born 1937), Daniel Beltrá (Spain/United States, 1964), Mohamed Bourouissa (Algeria/France, 1978), Philippe Chancel (France, 1959), Edmund Clark (UK, 1963), Carl De Keyzer (Belgium, 1958), Luc Delahaye (France, 1962), Rena Effendi (Azerbaijan, 1977), Jacqueline Hassink (Netherlands, 1966), An-My Lê (United States/Vietnam, 1961), Joel Sternfeld (United States, 1944), Guy Tillim (South Africa, 1962).

After the Saatchi Gallery, the Prix Pictet Power exhibition will begin a world tour including planned shows in Munich, Paris, Beirut, Istanbul Thessaloniki and Budapest and ending in early 2014 with an exhibition at the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) San Diego.

The mandate of the Prix Pictet is to use the power of photography to raise public awareness worldwide to the environmental and social challenges of the new millennium. Launched in 2008 by the Geneva-based private bank Pictet & Cie, the Prix Pictet has rapidly established itself as one of the world’s leading photography prizes.

The Prix Pictet has two elements: a prize of CHF 100,000 awarded to the photographer who, in the opinion of the independent jury, has produced a series of work that addresses most powerfully the theme of the award; and the Commission, awarded by the Partners of Pictet & Cie, in which a nominated photographer is invited to undertake a field trip to a region where the Bank is supporting a sustainability project.

For this edition of the award Pictet is supporting the Swiss-based humanitarian organisation Medair’s work in Bamyan Province in the Central Highlands of Afghanistan.

In each 18-month cycle, the award is centred on a distinct sustainability theme. The fourth theme of the Prix Pictet, Power, is a theme with enormous breadth, embracing contradiction and paradox in equal measure, that has uncovered images and issues that are both awe-inspiring and disturbing.

Update --- 22 Sept. .2013.

Pictet & Cie Bank ---- List of Crimes.

1996 ----- F.S.A--- Breach in London.

2003 ----- F.S.A. -- States rogues operating in Pictet's London office. Ivan Pictet
states that documents were forgeries but were later proved to be genuine in
the British Courts. He had documents destroyed in their London office --
hoping to hide the crimes.

2007 .- - - The Securities and Exchange Surveillance issued a recommendation
that the Prime Minister and The Commissioner of the FSA to take disciplinary action against Pictet Asset Management – Japan Ltd.

2008 .-- Dec. - Pictet Bank state - " We have never chosen any funds linked to Madoff.

2011 - - - Madoff Trustees sue Pictet & Cie. Bank for $156 Million.

2011- - - Pictet & Cie Bank abetted a Bribery Scheme - Oil company sues Pictet for $350Million

2012 - - - April – Geneva Bank Pictet used in Offshore Tax Scheme. ( USA.)

2012 -- - June. -- Published in Anglo INFO .Geneva.--- USA Trust Fund Investors were sent false and fraudulent documents by Pictet Bank in order to collect large fees. ( Like MADOFF)
Even after the SEC in the USA uncovered the fraud Pictet continued to charge fees and drain whatever was left in these accounts. Estimated that $90 million lost in this Pictet Ponzi scheme.

2012 - - - July. -- De – Spiegel. -- states – Pictet Bank uses a letterbox company in
Panama and a tax loophole involving investments in London to gain
German millionaires as clients.

2012 - - - August ---- German Opposition Leader accuses Swiss Banks of "organised crime."

2013 --- Jan.--- Swiss MP' table motion to freeze Tiab Mahmud's assets of " criminal origins"
held in Swiss banks – $18 million held in 5 accounts at Pictet & Cie. Bank. Bahamas.

Ironically the Pictet & Cie.Bank partners are bigger criminals than the criminals who have accounts in the their bank.

The bank is now seeking to re-structure -- to cut the partners liability – hoping to off load their decades of criminal responsibilty – and move onwards to carry out new crimes. The Germans are right -- the bankers should go to prison if found guilty of financial crimes..

Sods ---- Law.

Nov.2013.


For almost two decades we have strived to get justice for the injustice we have suffered at the hands of a world renowned bank .

Two Yorkshire men both running their own family businesses trying to resolve the problem by taking the correct legal procedures to recover their monies.

The matter was raised in parliament –twice – the FSA investigated the matter concluding that the bank had rogues operating in their London Bank --- but the rogues had left --- so there.

We then approached the Financial Ombudsman Service – our case was dealt with by seven different people ---- then numerous E-Mails were ignored --- nobody would speak to us. – so there.

We then asked the SFO ( Serious Fraud Office) to investigate our case
--- the criteria of our case ticked all their boxes --- we were instructed not to send down any documents / evidence --- in fact they wrote to us advising us to go to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau. ( CAB) .

RICHARD ALDERMAN ( The Boss) ---- who responded to our letter was the man who would not investigate the “ Madoff “ scandal or the “Libor” fiasco. The MP’S committee ----- said he was sloppy --- and the SFO was run like “ Fred Karno’s Circus. ----- so there.

Our M.P. approached our local Chief Constable to investigate – our West
Yorkshire Police Force --- made “ Dad’s Army” look like the S.A.S.
Inept , corrupt – from top to bottom. We were criminally dealt with by the Forces Solicitor --- the Head of the Economic Crime Unit --- and the Chief Constable --- one SIR NORMAN BETTISON. ---- so there.

We then were advised to pass our complaint against West Yorkshire Police to the I.P.C.C.--- which we did -- they instructed the West Yorkshire Police to look into our complaint. ----so there.

Sir Norman Bettison ---and the Forces Solicitor –and the Head of the Economic Crime Unit – all removed from their posts and facing criminal allegatioins. --- So there

We even sought justice through the Courts , culminating in a visit to the Court of Appeal. London. On leaving the Court of Appeal that day our barrister ( a rising star ) informed us that if that was justice then they can keep it. He quit the law and moved to Canada.----so there.

We learned a few years later that one of the judge’s in our case at the Courts of Appeal was related to a senior executive of the Bank.—so there.

The Bank ---- PICTET & CIE.. London. --- Geneva.
Voted private bank of the year ---2013.
IVAN PICTET ---- the senior partner --- lied on numerous occasions and had documents destroyed --- said genuine documents were forgeries.
2012—Voted Banker of the Year.
Oct 2013 --- Given the LEGION of HONOUR --- so there

But saying that honours were given to Hitler—Eichmann--- Mussolini --
Franco – he’s in fitting company. ---- so there.

MONTY RAPHAEL –Peters & Peters. London were the banks lawyers.
He along with Ivan Pictet withheld crucial documents requested by the High Court ---- the FSA and the police Fraud Squad.

Monty Raphael became an Honorary Queens Counsellor. ( Q.C.) in March.2012 ---- made Master of the Bench in Nov.2012 .
An expert in Fraud – the Doyen of Fraud Lawyers – so there.

This says a lot about Banks ---- the consensus of opinion is that they are highly paid “crooks” --- no wonder they voted Ivan Pictet banker of the year .

Full Story ----“ google or yahoo”
