The 2013 Sony World Photography Exhibition

Last week visited the Sony World photography Exhibition at Somerset House and just like last year, I found the exhibition to be just as good. In the exhibition, each room covers a different category for example, people, Nature & Wildlife  and Landscape, so there are a variety of topics for people to enjoy.

There were lots of photographs this year that caught my attention, to the stories behind them and the power and beauty of the image. So I think that I might blog each artists name along with their work in another blog post.

Below are some photographs of the day.

“One Day in History” by Andrea Gjestvang was my favourite out of the whole exhibition. The images were very powerful as it portrayed the after effects of surviving the  2011 massacre on the Norwegian island of Ultøya.

Another photograph that I loved was Nenad Saljic’s “A Portrait of the Matterhorn”.

‘I fink u freeky’ by Die Antwoord and Roger Ballen

I love this music video that was directed by Roger Ballen for the group Die Antwoord. I loved it because I see the video as a piece of art work compared to other music videos out there.

 

More of Roger Ballen’s work can be seen at his website rogerballen.com. Have a look.
