The 2014 POYi World Understanding Award has been given to Robin Hammond's project CONDEMNED which documents mental health in African countries in crisis. The book CONDEMNED was also a finalist in the Best Photography Book category. Robin's portraits from Lagos also received an Award of Excellence.
Robin Hammond’s ‘My Lagos’ introduces us to the colour, energy and chaos of Africa’s largest city. Full bleed colour photographs take us on a journey through bustling Lagos streets and into the homes of the rich, poor, and rising middle class. ‘My Lagos’ opens our eyes to an Africa rarely seen in western media.
