Tour de France Photo 2014

Florilège et coulisses
Drôle d’odysée que celle du Tour de France Photo. Imaginez plutôt: treize bénévoles et un chef cuisinier logeant dans trois camping-cars et reliant en une quinzaine de jours quatorze étapes où chaque fois les attendent des dizaines de passionnés – modèles, coiffeuses, stylistes, maquilleuses, photographes – triés sur le volet et venus, le temps d’une journée, unir leurs talents pour réaliser les meilleures photos possibles. Tous les ingrédients sont réunis pour que l’odysée vire à la galère. Et pourtant, il n’en est rien. Ce portfolio consacré au millésime 2014 en apporte une nouvelle fois la preuve.

Travel Photographer of the Year

Travel Photographer of the Year is proud to showcase another great set of images as the 2014 winners. Once again they are very different from last year’s winners. Some you will find beautiful, others show a more gritty side to travel photography. All were taken by talented photographers – amateur, semi-professional and professional.

Travel Photographer of the Year
Winner — Philip Lee Harvey, UK

What the judges thought….
As with last year’s overall winner, Philip entered a number of high quality portfolios in different categories; the judges felt that these two were the strongest. Lalibela, Ethiopia and the Himba of Namibia have been photographed many times yet, despite our familiarity with these subjects, these elegant images of Lalibela and the beautiful and intimate Himba images have captured the subjects in a striking way.
The two sets of images are shot in very different styles. The Lalibela portfolio uses the portrait format to show the depth of the rock-hewn churches and this is complimented by the photographer’s angle of view in this difficult lighting.
The portraits of the Himba woman are beautiful in their detail and limited colour palette, capturing the tribal shapes and patterns in strong compositions.
