My four favourites from the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards shortlist:
I saw The Lego Movie earlier today and the Lego city of Bricksbury (run by President Business) looks less precisely patterned. The Lego Movie is absolutely delightful, by the way.
I’d no idea there was such a thing called Sylvinite. This photo reminded me of Moria (the Dwarven kingdom in Middle Earth) somehow.
The Maha Kumbh Mela happens once in 12 years and is, by all accounts, a mahussive chaos. Which is why I love this photo. It’s so…neat — not a word that’s usually associated with either India or the Kumbh Mela.
Sure, it’s actually a river, but this is how I imagined the branches of Yggdrasil, the immense tree that connects the nine realms of ancient Norse cosmology, would look.
These and other images shortlisted for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards may be seen here.
