On Sunday 29th April, Backyard Magazine teamed up with the World Photography Organisation to curate and produce a special pop-up issue. This was just one of the many events held during World Photo London, as part of the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition.
With the help of guest curators Man Chueng, Jonathan Goldberg and Andy Preston, a number of invited contributors became part of the process and voted, debated and negotiated which projects should feature in the special edition.
With one or two exceptions there was a general consensus – but as always, the editor gets the final say!
We are really excited to be presenting all of this work (including some so new the ink has barely dried!) and to have discovered projects which Backyard will return to in the future.
Thanks to everyone who submitted work, who came along to our pop-up event and to the WPO for hosting Backyard at Somerset House.
All of the contributors who took part in our pop-up event have been included in this issue of Backyard. This gallery features a taste of their projects.
