Celebrating the diversity of photography as it exists today, the Sony World Photography Awards 2022 exhibition showcases the very best images from all competitions across the Awards.

Bringing together inspiring contemporary photographers from more than 200 countries and territories, the display will then travel to the Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool before embarking on an international tour.

A special curation of over a dozen large-scale photographs by the Awards’ 2022 Outstanding Contribution to Photography recipient, Edward Burtnyksy, will also be on show. The selection, made by the artist, highlights key bodies of work and themes over his 40-year career. These include epic scenes from Anthropocene (2018), an examination of human activity and its profound influence on the Earth and its systems; Oil (2009), a 12-year chronicle of the complex oil cycle; and images from Burtynsky’s forthcoming series Africa (2022), a look at the African landscape and areas transformed by resource extraction.
