Dominic Hawgood scoops BJP's International Photography Award series category with Under the Influence

A woman walks to back to her room after bathing in what remains of Badia East, an informal settlement in Lagos, Nigeria on February 27, 2014. One year earlier, residents woke to construction equipment demolishing their community on order from Lagos State Government. Most only had time to get their children to safety, losing all businesses and belongings. Many took refuge with family and friends in the remaining portion of the settlement. Thousands are still displaced one year later. Image copyright Jane Hahn, www.janehahn.com
