One picture in the Saatchi Online Wall in Cannes

Some days ago I received this mail:

I work at the Saatchi Gallery and am writing to you to congratulate you on having been chosen to have one of your photographs on the Saatchi Online Wall, which is part of the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards taking place in Cannes later this month. We have made a selection of just 100 photographs to be presented on the Saatchi Online Wall out of the 1000 most highly rated entries. […]

The Sony Photography Awards exhibitions, including the Saatchi Online Wall, will open on 20 April. […] We anticipate thousands of people coming to see the exhibition and your work! Photographs of the Saatchi Online Wall will be published on Saatchi Online’s Magazine after the close of the 2008 Sony Awards at the end of April.

The nice thing is that I’m not obliged to print one of the photos selected in the short list of WPA, but I have the freedom to choose another picture.

I have therefore prepared a personal page on the website of the Saatchi Gallery and chose to print Moloch, a photograph of demons, to be exposed in Cannes.
