Sony Photographer '09

David Zimmerman - Desert (one of a series)The Sony Photographer of the Year for 2009 is US photographer David Zimmerman. His virtually monochrome series of photos of desert landscapes in the south-west USA impressed judge Mary Ellen Mark with its "poetry" and won him the $25,000 (£16,800) prize. I guess if you're seeking visual poetry, this is it. Personally I'd have sought something less bland and more gobsmacking. Maybe that's why I don't get invited to join panels of judges.
