I’ve been eagerly awaiting my copy of the Sony World Photography Awards Book for weeks now and I’m pleased to say that it finally arrived today.
The winning images in the book were selected by a jury comprising of world-class photographers, curators and agents. The 2009 edition focuses upon the environment through the lenses of Bruce Davidson, Stuart Franklin, Cédric Delsaux and Brent Stirton.
The book features all the winners, with comments from the jury members, and features a retrospective dedicated to Marc Riboud, recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award.
The SWPA 2009 book is one of my favorite photography books that I’ve ever had the pleasure to own and I’m delighted to have my work feature alongside such fantastic imagery taken by a remarkable selection of contemporary photographers.
I would certainly recommend this book to any aspiring photographers or to anyone just interested in taking a look at some rather wonderful photography.
This is the first time that I’ve been published in a dedicated photography book and I couldn’t be happier that it was in the Sony World Photography Awards book with my own personal work.
If you’d like to order a copy of the book then you may do so through the publisher (Verlhac Editions).
