"I don't like the hustle and bustle of big cities, I prefer to explore the wilderness. I like to be in many places at the same time - that is the way I try to compensate for the lost years of my youth."

"This medium has never failed to motivate me to create new work. I will do photography as long as I can feel a strong bond with my camera, and I hope it will last a lifetime."

This year's theme requires photographers to present a strong series of 5-10 images that look beyond the ordinary and every day. Entries close February 6th, 2018.

Here's our weekly selection of the best entries to the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards. If your image is showcased in today's blog, you’ve been chosen as among the best entries so far!

"The medium of photography can be powerful. It is a way of capturing a moment in time well enough so that it is visually arresting to someone that was not even there."
