'Hypnotic' dunes photo scoops prize

Diminutive Dune, West Wittering
Benjamin Graham

A "hypnotic and contemplative" image of the dunes at West Wittering in West Sussex has won the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017 award.

Photographer Benjamin Graham has scooped the top prize of £10,000 for his picture, Diminutive Dune, which was chosen from thousands of entries.

It is the third year running a photograph of the coastline has won the competition which celebrates the UK landscape.

I particularly like the indeterminate scale of the image. The double s-curve could be two metres long or 2,000... It was actually about 20."

Benjamin's image has a hypnotic and contemplative quality that acts as an antidote to turbulent times.... The composition leads the eye on to infinite calm."
