Syngenta Photography Award

Syngenta Photography Award

If I were in London, I would clear my calender and make my way to the Somerset House to see this exhibition. Professional and amateur photographer’s works are on display exploring this year’s theme of Scarcity Waste as part of the Syngenta Photography Award which aims to promote key challenges facing our world today. The whole collection is also online here.

There are many many captivating pictures of people from around the work, contrasting lives of those from different countries and in a sense the negatives of Globalisation. A number of themes are explored such as food waste, water and our planet under pressure. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
