The winners of the Syngenta Photography Award 2015 have been announced. In response to this year’s theme of “Scarcity-Waste” VII’s Stefano De Luigi submitted his work on the drought in Kenya, and received third prize in the Open Competition.

“Scarcity-Waste is the second edition of the Syngenta Photography Award. In a world of limited resources, scarcity and waste have become fundamental social, political and environmental issues of our time. In the past 50 years, the world’s demand for natural resources has doubled. If we continue to use resources and generate waste at the current rate, by 2030 we will need the equivalent of two planets. But we only have one. Something needs to change.”

An exhibition of the winners’ work is on view through April 10, 2015 at the Somerset House in London.
