Travel Photographer of the Year
The winning entries from the 2011 awards are making their public debut in a free-to-view exhibition this month.
The exhibition also showcases a number of archive images from the Society’s own collection, giving visitors a chance to view pictures dating back to the pioneer days of photography – such as historic shots of Papua New Guinean tribesmen. These images have all been specially selected to tie in with the contemporary photographs on display.
It also features a showcase of work by the 2011 awards’ overall winner, the American photographer Louis Montrose, together with photographs taken in India by Stuart Dunn, when, as part of his prize from last year’s TPOTY awards, he traveled to India to document the work of the Elephant Family charity. There will also be images shot earlier this year by the 2007 winner Cat Vinton, when Travel Photographer of the Year took her to photograph the Dalai Lama.
