A collaborative project between the Prix Pictet and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, focusing on the work of thirty internationally recognized photographers from twenty-four countries.


In this thought-provoking anthology, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum has partnered with the Prix Pictet, the world’s leading prize for photography and sustainability, to show a different side to humanitarian photography.


Coeditors William A. Ewing and Elisa Rusca decided to select thirty photographers from the five thousand or so artists who have been nominated since the award was founded in 2008. Adopting a broad definition of humanitarian photography, they looked for work with a visible humanitarian impulse and attributes such as care, dignity, and empathy.


The result is a diverse, stimulating and, at times, surprising visual display that is very different from the "breaking news" images we often associate with humanitarian action. What sets these photographs apart? An unerring sense of compassion. This compelling collection underlines the power of contemporary photography to move us and inspire positive change in the world.



William A. Ewing has been an author, lecturer, curator of photography and museum director for more than forty years. His many publications on photography include Landmark, Civilization (with Holly Roussell), Flora Photographica (with Danaé Panchaud), and Edward Burtynsky.

Elisa Rusca is an art historian, writer, and curator. She is currently director of exhibitions and collections at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva.

Michael Benson is a journalist, filmmaker, and artist. His work has been published in the New York Times, the Atlantic, Rolling Stone, and the Nation.
