A major exhibition of photographs about the Outer Hebrides which has already been seen in a wide variety of European countries – from Italy to Finland – and in the USA and Japan, comes to London next month as part of the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition at Somerset House – from April 18th to May 6th.

This is the work of French-born, Munich-based photographer Laetitia Vançon, who was most recently photographing in a West African war zone for the New York Times.

Laetitia spent much of a year in the Outer Hebrides in 2016-17 and created a body of work which lit the fuse for the launch of her career as an internationally known photographer.

The exhibition organisers say: “The world’s best imagery from 2018 will be on show at Somerset House for the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition.

“With more than 800 images on display, this global photography exhibition presents all winning and shortlisted entries, including the Photographer of the Year, from this year’s Awards across its four competitions: Professional, Open, Youth and Student.

“From portraiture to landscape, architecture to wildlife and fine art to street photography, the selection is truly international in its scope.

“The exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 18 April and closes Monday 6 May. The display will then embark on a worldwide tour.”
