See the world through the eyes of real travellers with over 300 photographs from across the globe. From the quirky and the curious to the simply stunning, the sheer variety of images in Rough Guides’ unique and exciting new photobook is a joyous celebration of travel today.
It is also a beautiful testament to modern photography. With the rise of Instagram, a million travel images a day float into digital space – but few make it into print. That’s why we invited our readers to submit their travel snaps and – maybe – see them reproduced in a gorgeously designed photobook.
The response was inspiring. We received some 5000 submissions, showcasing a world of travel experiences, from Rainbow Mountain in Peru to sunset in Goa, busy city scenes to wild seascapes, Korean street cooks to Edinburgh bagpipers and Mongolian hunters. In mood, tone and execution – never mind location – each image is as unique as the person who took it.
To top things off, we drafted in some expert assistance to help us whittle the entries down – not least the eagle eye of legendary Magnum photographer Martin Parr. Seals of approval don’t get much better than that.
And so here it is. You Are Here – because you were there.
