A STRIKING image of two humans fighting in a nightclub has won a major nature photography award.
Tom Logan won the Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year prize for the image entitled Man Sparking Out Other Man in Club Deluxe, Chelmsford.
He said: “It was just one of those magical once-in-a-lifetime moments.
“I was just taking some general shots of provincial nightclub fauna when I noticed a kerfuffle near the VIP champagne bar.
“Two large males were arguing over a female. Suddenly, out of nowhere, one of them unleashed a blow.
“From the photo you can see the raw power as fist connects with chin. It was all over in a flash, the bouncers stepped in and bundled them off into the night.
“I just felt humbled to be there, and to witness the noble savagery of nature.”
24-year-old Emma Bradford said: “It’s an amazing image that really stimulates the imagination. You start to wonder how much booze they’d had, who started it and whether it carried on outside.
“The one on the left looks a bit like Bradley Cooper but I don’t think it is.”
