The Prix Pictet was founded by the Pictet Group in 2008. Today the award is recognised as the world’s leading prize for photograph.

This episode of the podcast explores how photography helps us process our own mortality and remember those who are gone.

Professor Hutchison spoke to Saving Faces’ Patron Julia Hobsbawn OBE and journalist Kirsty Lang about his experiences of mortality.
