Sony World Photography Awards 2011 winners - Telegraph
I don't like those winner's ones much.
It reminds me of the way I don't like Walter Sickert paintings.
I wouldn't buy those images
Mostly I don't like, admire, respect or aspire to to create images like these 'winners'.
I think the ants are amazing and I'm outraged at the thought of the 22yr old with her eyes cut out, a victim of rape.
But there is not a one of them that I'd pay money for and hang on my wall, or even download and want to use as a computer wallpaper. Just not my idea of great photography.
Obviously Sony will have engaged the services of world class judges but I just don't see in these images what they were impressed with.
I dont really get the first two, but the rest are all better than good.
Thanks for the link!
