Congratulations to Joseph Anthony, Hong Kong based environmental and wildlife photographer on his Commended Award in the Sony World Photography Organisation competition for “A New Beginning”. This amazing image was judged to be in the top 0.1% of the 320,000 submissions worldwide. Anthony’s work has been published in National Geographic and we were delighted to feature two of his beautiful photographs in the ENDANGERED 2017 exhibition.
Anthony has recently been in Hawaii documenting the volcanic eruption of Kilauea and taking part in human and animal rescue, it "was the most incredible and challenging 8 weeks photographic and videographic adventure of my life covering what has become the most historic, unprecedented and epic eruption of our lifetime where I told all manner of lava, human and animal impact stories starting with my being staked out in an abandoned house in a war zone like environment for the first 2-3 weeks as active fissures erupted around me right on the doorstep. Constant earthquakes, violent eruptions, shockwaves from the sound of the explosions keeping me awake the whole time while capturing the ever changing events as lava kept appearing all around. "
