2018 Sony World Photography Awards.
Somerset House, London, April 2018.
With works by more than 600 artists on show (winning and shortlisted for the Awards), this exhibition covers a wide variety of genres; architecture, landscape, street photography, sports, wildlife, portraiture and travel. Located in the East and West Wings of Somerset House (you have to cross the courtyard to continue viewing!) the images are hung in elegant, spacious rooms (lots with fireplaces) and corridors.
The images are arranged in categories by room, which flow together harmoniously.
The exhibition wasn’t busy at all, considering it was lunchtime. I was able to meander through at a leisurely pace, with time to read descriptions and gaze at the incredible standard of photography on show.
It was great to see such diversity within the same exhibition. I don’t think I favoured any category in particular, there were many captivating images to behold in each.
This was a great exhibition for a lunchtime visit, and my “lunchtime online special” ticket very reasonable at £6. The quality and diversity of photography on display was fantastic. Additionally there are a few other things to see at Somerset House, if you haven’t been before (there are a couple of google-worthy examples for staircase fans). The Awards exhibition is on until 6th May, 2018.
