...FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE!
An exhibition of images from the Travel Photographer of the Year competition is now on show at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Here's a selection of the winners and runners-up
Tribes people, Western Highlands, Papua New Guinea. "I was shooting in Papua New Guinea for the BBC’s landmark documentary Human Planet. I randomly met these guys in the forest near a local singsing ritual. We couldn’t understand each other, and I don’t know anything about them, who they are, or where they came from..." Photograph by Timothy Allen, UK, highly recommended in One Shot Adventures category.
Wangi Wangi island, Indonesia. "While few young children are now born on boats, the ocean is still very much their playground. Here Enal plays with his 'pet' shark." Photograph by James Morgan, UK, winner of Portfolio – Encounters category.
A mass ordination of 34,000 monks at Wat Phra Dhammakaya, a Buddhist temple in Thailand. Now fully ordained, the monks wear the orange robes they received earlier that morning, and simultaneously bow in prayer. Photograph by Luke Duggleby, UK, commended in Portfolio - Amazing Places category.
