Link: lens culture: Prix Pictet 2009 shortlist:

Prix Pictet is a yearly £60,000 ($97,000) photography prize awarded for a body of work that focuses on environmental sustainability.This year the theme is ‘earth’. A Mexican garbage dump where people forage to sustain a pitiful existence; the changing landscape and displaced communities of China’s Yangtze River; the devastating impact of oil production in the Niger Delta; and the annual pilgrimage to the desert fronts of the Iran-Iraq war are among the subjects that feature in the work of this year’s shortlisted artists.

Lens Culture is pleased to provide previews of all twelve outstanding international photographers who are finalists.
