If you want to see some of the best international contemporary photography from both professionals and amateurs in the fields of fashion, travel, wildlife, landscape, portraiture and current affair then head down to Somerset House this weekend for your last chance to check out the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition.
The Sony World Photography Awards are widely recognised as one of the world’s leading photography competitions and the exhibition showcasing the extraordinary award-winning and shortlisted entries, held annually at Somerset House, returns this April. Offering a stunning snapshot of the world in 2012, the show will present international contemporary photography from both professionals and amateurs in the fields of fashion, travel, wildlife, landscape, portraiture and current affairs. The opening weekend of the exhibition coincides with the World Photo London photography festival.
The exhibition will also include a special display of work by iconic American photographer William Eggleston, who will receive the Outstanding Contribution to Photography award at the Sony World Photography Awards Gala Ceremony on 25 April.
Recognised today as the pioneer of colour photography and the personal documentary style, William Eggleston has been producing cutting-edge work for over fifty years. Since first picking up a camera in 1957, Eggleston’s work is said to find ‘beauty in the everyday’. His images capture the ordinary world around him, creating interest through sharp observation, dynamic composition and great wit.
