TRAVEL Awards June 2017


“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

Congratulation to all winning photographers. Their images stood out from a group of excellent work and depicted with all the beauty and marvel the very notion of travel. We are delighted to share these unique and astonishing moments and memories captured all around the world!
– The Independent Photographer Editors.

– The Theme: Travel Photography

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. For the Travel Award we wanted to see images that communicate the life of a place in all it’s splendor. Whatever the subject may be: Street, Portrait, Landscape, Documentary… We wanted to share YOUR journey, visually and intellectually.

– The Judge: Frédéric Lagrange

Frédéric has always had a strong innate curiosity about his surroundings and his natural ability at crossing cultural and language barriers has allowed him to immerse himself completely and document the life of the most secluded indigenous tribes and people around the world.

Traveling through more than 100 countries – Frédéric has been documenting the world for the last fifteen years and his evocative color and black and white images have been featured everywhere from The New York Times magazine, Vanity Fair, to Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and The New Yorker.
