Image caption, Simon Thompson: "Whilst travelling in Malawi with my daughter, who was recovering from a serious operation, we came across a towering abandoned church surrounded by makeshift homes. The candid photograph she took of my shadow in the light of a huge broken arched window struck me in terms of the poignancy of our journey. Sometimes our biggest dreams and aspirations may fall by the wayside, but there is always hope and light through the darkness."
