The image above, Forest of Resonating Lamps by Yukihito Ono, is just one of the thousands of phenomenal entries to make the shortlist in this year’s Sony World Photography Awards.
Hailed as one of the world’s largest and most prestigious global photography events, the awards showcase the best that the art form has to offer across a range of genres.
According to Creative Boom, over 326 000 entries were submitted across the four competitions for 2019, the highest ever number to date, with the UK, Italy, North America, Mexico, India and Korea seeing the biggest increase in submissions.
But you know what they say – a picture is worth a thousand words – so I’m going to stop waffling on and leave you to enjoy the 17 000 words below:
