Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition



After work three of us went to visit the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition at Somerset House. At work I look after the social media side of a photography competition and get to see a lot of the entries, so it was a great exercise in comparison.

The photos were - as you'd expect - amazing. There were so many different categories, my favourites being sport, enhanced and split-second. There was a whole room dedicated to Andrea Gjestvang who photographed the survivors of the Norway bombings in 2011 which gave all of us goosebumps.

It isn't something I'd normally do on a Thursday after work, but it made a nice change and I should really make the effort to get out and do more of these kinds of things.

The exhibition is only on until the 12th and costs £7.50 so hurry if you want to see it!
