This year’s event features the entries that took top honours in the 2014 awards, in which amateur and professional photographers from over 100 countries competed. The latest award-winning images document the magnificence, beauty and poignancy of this planet and its inhabitants.
The overall winner of the 2014 Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) awards, British photographer Philip Lee Harvey, also has a private showcase of his work in the exhibition, bringing a further range of superb, contemporary travel images for visitors to enjoy.
The exhibition also features the winning short films from the 2014 TPOTY awards, led by Rufus Blackwell’s timelapse video that compresses Kumbh Mela – the largest gathering of people in the world – into just two minutes, with 80,000 individual images combined to exhilarating effect.
