Prix Pictet Podcast “Special Edition: Joana Choumali”

Can photography save us from ourselves? Leading photographers consider the power of the photograph to explore the urgent environmental and social issues facing humanity today. From the Prix Pictet, the leading global photography prize on sustainability.

Can photography heal trauma? In spring 2016, gunmen opened fire at a beach resort in Grand-Bassam, Cote d’Ivoire. Three weeks after the event, Joana Choumali visited a city in mourning, taking photos on an iPhone and then later embroidering them to create a hopeful resilient look at the process of healing. This Special Edition episode features for the first time the full interview with Prix Pictet 'Hope' winner Joana Choumali first partly released in 2020.
