Deadline: 30 June 2017 THEME: TRAVEL

© Frédéric Lagrange

When traveling, the only way to discover the rhythm of life of a place is to experience it.

Be it while hiking remote landscapes or getting lost in unknown towns and cities: Each place we visit has its own particular look, ambiance, and atmosphere.

Understanding it’s people, customs and traditions is vital and there’s always something unique to capture.

This month we want to see images that communicate the life of a place in all it’s splendor, and trigger our memories.

Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary... We want to share your journey, visually and intellectually.

- Let’s travel together!
