This year’s Sony World Photography Awards has been a huge success; you won’t want to miss the exhibition at Somerset House
Attracting almost a quarter of a million entries, this year’s competition is the strongest year to date, with powerful and compelling imagery being submitted from countries all over the world.
The World Photography Organisation announced the winners in London last week, which included the formidable concept photography duo RongRong and Inri and a Grand prize winner from Iran, photographer Asghar Khamseh, for his arresting portraits of acid attack victims. The work on show at Somerset House includes winners and shortlisted entrants from 14 professional categories as well as youth categories, with some pictures guaranteed move people to tears, while other projects may inspire laughter.
This raft of incredible, thought-provoking work submitted for the Sony World Photography Awards is now on display at Somerset House in London until May 8th 2016 and will be published in the limited edition Sony World Photography Awards book.
