The most amazingly ,breath-taking moments in time caught ,showing that indeed fact,is stranger than fiction,that fact can be wilder than our imaginings,sucking us into worlds more fantastical than fairytales...............I am captivated by it all,spellbound by life...... as seen through the lens.

one of the best part in Photography either amateur or professional is that sharing your artistic and imaginative view of environment , individual and the society .,.

Truly global range, depicting the magnificence of our planet from the bigger picture to the tiniest of detail. I love the quiver tree and the Namibian Night Sky as well as the Maasai on the rock.....born and brought up in African always an African at heart!

You'll be inspired the moment you step into this impressive exhibition. What great talent the world has to offer and a perfect venue to showcase their work. My favourite by far was the portraits of the Karo tribe by Jan Schlegal. A definite must see!

An annual event at the National Geograpic Society, the TPOTY exhibition should be a "must see" for anyone interested in either travel or photography. The exhibition is compact, and in this weather is a perfect venue as some of the photographs are displayed outside (umbrellas for inclement weather). The photographs themselves are always fantastic and inspirational! Don't miss it.

A range of very good travel photographs are displayed at TPOTY exhibition. It's well laid out, at a good venue, just minutes from some of London's major attractions (e.g. the Natural History Museum, V&A and Science Museum) and it's free. It's well worth seeing.

A breathtaking visually inspiring account of travel experiences: people, places and the planet

This is an amazing exhibition showcasing some breathtaking images from travel photographers throughout the globe. From the sublime to the shocking, humorous to political, the range of talent in this exhibition makes you think again about the world we live in. Held in a beautiful garden setting the photographs are given the prominence they deserve. Take advantage of the decent weather we're having at the moment and put this on your to do list immediately!

Amazing work! I loved it and I just felt to leave my job and go travelling to take photos! Terrific images! great location and lovely open space ... I am glad I attended :-) !

Wow, wow and wow again! This is just an outstanding exhibition, and the location is terrific. I wandered up from the V&A, and I'm so glad I did! There's a huge range of images here, some quite sublime, others fairly hard-hitting, and the talent is quite remarkable. I loved the camera obscura in the yurt in the garden too! This exhibition is free, and I plan to go back and take friends with me. The coffee in the little cafe in the garden was fantastic - think I'll buy myself some of their beans!

Travel Photographer of the Year exhibition is a MUST SEE! Many breathtaking photos! Look out for the amazing photos of the night skies in the Namibian desert. FYI the exhibition is FREE and accessible to all.

What an exhibition, so many amazing photos that make you want to instantly leave the RGS and go straight to an airport to travel the world!

Inspiring and amazing work, makes me want to drop my job and go around with my camera, really great work from these photographers

A beautiful exhibition showcasing inspiring Images from all over the globe by amazingly talented photographers! And its free too! A great way to spend a few hours in a wonderful part of London, with an opportunity to explore the grounds of the Royal Geographical Society as well as Kensington and Hyde Park.

Lovely way to spend a sunny morning/afternoon - walking around the gardens of the Royal Geographic Society, looking at these fascinating, beautiful images. The photos are exhilarating, inspiring, uplifting. Saw places, people, wildlife, trees (amazing trees!) I'd never seen, never been, never seen like that. The photographers have captured gems of life. Loved the burning man festival photos and the extraordinary starry desert skies... Dreamy, wild enchanting. Also some interesting - and I imagine rarely seen - historical photos too from RGS archives. Well worth a visit - and just a skip and a hop out of Hyde Park and its FREE!!!

The Travel Photographer of the Year show is a real gem! Some fantastic and inspiring photography from around the world on show in a great setting, right next to Kensington Gardens and Hyde park. I've taken my family for the last couple of years, wouldn't miss it, and of course it's free! One of the best things to do in London!
