You hear the mantra ‘everyone’s a photographer nowadays’ all over the shop, but it’s far from true. Yes everyone takes photographs now but that doesn’t necessarily make them a photographer. And when you see the creme de la creme in action you understand the difference. And the Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition is a great place to see what sets the best apart from mere snappers. Time and again you come across images that combine great beauty with great insight, and images that make you yearn for places that you’ve never been (and reconsider places you know well). The yearly annual of the best work is a great present for anyone who likes photography but if you’re skint the exhibition itself is free and very, very good.
