    In conjunction with the Prix Pictet’s Power, which opened at Aperture Gallery on December 5, 2013, Aperture hosted a conversation between two of Prix Pictet's short-listed photographers, Edmund Clark and Jacqueline Hassink. This was Prix Pictet’s fourth cycle, and 650 photographers were nominated for the prize. Of the winning work, Kofi A. Annan, former secretary general of the United Nations and honorary president of the Prix Pictet, writes, “The work of the short-listed photographers provides a vivid portrait of human vulnerability. But they also remind us that the same forces that might engender despair can also be the source of great hope. They evoke a heartening reminder of our capacity for humanity, courage, and solidarity in the face of adversity.” Following an introduction by Deputy Director Sarah McNear, Edmund Clark and Jacqueline Hassink discussed the evolution of their projects, their experiences photographing, and their approach to the theme of power. Clark’s work, which took him inside Guantanamo Bay and to residences of former inmates, provided an interesting contrast to Hassink’s work, Tables of Power which brought her to the residences and boardrooms of some of the most influential women in the Middle East. They ended the evening by inviting the audience to ask questions in a brief Q&A session. View “Edmund Clark and Jacqueline Hassink in Conversation,” Part 2 and Part 3 on Vimeo.

                  For two years Edmund Clark photographed inside a unique prison community, E Wing at Kingston Prison, Portsmouth. For eight years this was Britain's only wing dedicated to holding elderly life prisoners: murderers; rapists; paedophiles and other violent criminals aged from their late 50s to over 80 years old. These powerful and poignant images fuse large format documentary photography with still life symbolism to explore the world of the ageing 'lifer'. Still Life Killing Time is not simply a reportage about a particular prison. Clark explores the experience of long term incarceration and the passage of time, and touches on how ageing and physical decline affect the prison environment. The claustrophobia of these close up, deliberate and regular compositions reflects both the nature of the place and the experience of working in E Wing.
