Sony World Photography Awards 2023: Inside a Mogadishu Fish Market
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, March 14, 2023 @ 09:30 PM (EST)


After recently announcing the winners and shortlisted entries in the Open competition of the Sony World Photography Awards 2023, the finalists and shortlist for the Professional competition have now been announced.

Among the finalists in the Documentary Projects category is British photographer Tariq Zaidi, who traveled to the capital of Somalia, Mogadishu, to photograph the chaotic scenes at the Hamar Weyne fish market in the heart of the city. Zaidi says it is here that hundreds of fishermen sell their catch, including yellowfin tuna, swordfish, marlin, longtail tuna, bonito, skipjack tuna and Spanish mackerel. “Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing civil war and a lack of investment in the sector,” says Zaidi, “the market remains a key source of employment and economic activity.”

The overall winners in the Open, Professional, Student and Youth competitions will be announced on April 13th, while the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition will run from April 14th to May 1st at Somerset House in London, UK.
