Vanity Fair’s Year in Photographs

Vanity Fair began 2017 with stunning back-lot portraits of one of the world’s biggest movie stars, Jennifer Lawrence, and somehow managed to go up from there. From the Hollywood Portfolio to the on-set shoot with the Star Wars: The Last Jedi cast to the cover story on future princess Meghan Markle, it was another year of Vanity Fair-provided unparalleled access to the people that fascinate us the most. Ahead, a look back at Vanity Fair’s eventful 2017, in photographs.

Top 25 Photos on Flickr in 2017 From Around The World (in no particular order)

In 2017 billions of photos were posted to Flickr by photographers from around the world. From all that work, we’ve pulled together the Top-25 Flickr Photos of 2017, a gorgeous collection that celebrates the diversity of talent and perspectives on Flickr.
To reach this final list, we started with an algorithm that calculated the top photos based on a number of social and engagement metrics, for example, how many times the photo was viewed, faved, or shared. Flickr staff curated that raw data to avoid the results being a complete popularity contest. We also limited selections to one photo per photographer who placed in the top list multiple times.

Best Wildlife Photography

What makes a wildlife photograph the best? Is it because it’s a tack-sharp, perfectly lit technical masterpiece? A jaw-dropping shot of megafauna? A glimpse of a rarely seen moment from the animal kingdom? A new perspective on ordinary behaviour?

I don’t think there’s one answer. Photography, like all art forms, is largely subjective. Sure, there’s a certain level of skill and knowledge that’s required to take a beautiful wildlife image; composition, exposure, lines, patience, diligence, etc. But what makes a wildlife image the best is really up to you, the viewer.

Well, we’ve certainly given you plenty to look at in Best Wildlife Photography 2018. To close out Canada’s 150th year and usher in the next 150, we looked back on the past seven issues of Best Wildlife Photography and chose images worthy of the designation “the best of the best.” Photographed by talented members of our 70,000-photographer-strong Canadian Geographic Photo Club, these images are the kind that prompted us, as magazine editors, creative directors and designers, to stop and say “Wow!”

The mating rituals of elk are confrontational. A bull elk with a harem of cows and calves will be aggressive in their defense and will battle other bulls for dominance, sometimes to the death.

Called the ghost of the north woods, the lynx stays as silent as possible when stalking its prey, which is usually swift snowshoe hares.

Spring surprise
Nestled into a vivid day lily, this spring peeper could easily be mistaken for tropical fauna, but these tiny tree frogs are suited to the cold. By hibernating under logs and in loose bark, they’re able to range well into the forests of eastern Canada.
