There’s a whole lot of photography on view now at Somerset House with the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards exhibition with a good assortment of eye catching and poignant works to see.
The number of photographs to view impresses. Those that I was most pleased to give more than a once over at the press preview include Li Fan’s photos of life among the Ethnic Yi people in China’s Great Liangshan Mountains; Jordi Pizarro’s portraits of Acid Survivors in India; John Moore’s gut wrenching images o the Ebola Crisis in Liberia.
I also really enjoyed the chance to check out works by legendary Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt, winner of SWP’s 2015 Outstanding Contribution to Photography award.
Hardcore fans of contemporary photography, keep this show on your radar.
One more thing: hats off to Somerset House for becoming such the premiere centre for photographic exhibition in London. Really amazing stuff doing on there these days!
The 2015 Sony World Photography Awards exhibition runs from 24 April to 10 May at Somerset House, Somerset House, The Strand, WC2R 1LA. For tickets and more details go to worldphoto.org.
