The wet, dank weather of Scotland creates landscapes of moody beauty. A million stars fill the sky over the Namibian desert. A nomadic Nenet child in Siberia trudges through the snow, gathering wood for her family. An Ethiopian warrior displays the crocodile he has hunted. Farm workers in Myanmar harvest groundnuts in a scene of almost cinematic beauty. Figures at Nevada’s Burning Man festival dot the landscape like ants. Gulls fight over the remains of a seal left when a polar bear has eaten its fill.
These are just a few of the glorious images that can be seen at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London when the winning entries from the 2012 Travel Photographer of the Year awards (tpoty.com) make their public debut in a magnificent, free-to-view, exhibition running daily from July 12th to August 18th.
Visitors can take an intriguing visual journey around the globe, through the eyes of the amateur and professional photographers who beat entrants from over 90 countries to take the top places in these hotly-contested awards. The exhibition will also showcase a history of photography through fascinating archive images from the Society’s own Collection, giving visitors a chance to view rare pictures dating back to the pioneer days of travel
photography. And, with prints produced by Genesis Imaging, and specialist lighting from Direct Photographic, this wonderful mix of contemporary and historic imagery will be beautifully showcased to its best advantage in an exhibition which also celebrates TPOTY’s 10th anniversary.
