The Independent Photographer, a global network of photographers, travellers and art buffs, has announced its annual 10 winners of its Travel Photographer contest with a uniquely Australian image among the finalists.
The winning photos, according to the organisers “communicate the life of a place in all its splendor, whatever the subject from street, portrait, landscape or documentary”.
