50 of the Best photographs of 2015

2015 Photography

Photographing travel, people, places and things.

It has been a big and exciting year and as it comes to a close I have compiled my favourite 50 photographs of the year. Over the year I have been lucky enough to travel through a number of different countries, getting to participate in many festivals and meet so many fascinating people along the way. I haven’t updated the blog often enough so I have taken this time to reflect on the year and some of the wonderful times spent behind the camera.

I spent three months in India, which is a photographers paradise. Surrounded in colour and vibrant life, I got to see my first Holi festival as well as the desert festival in Jaisalmer. There were some more moving times like walking through slums in Delhi, spending the day in Manshiyat Naser (Garbage City) in Cairo or while on assignment in the township of Diepsloot, Johannesburg.

2015 also provided me with the pleasure of sharing tea with newly made Bedouin friends, and ample opportunities to take candid portraits while travelling.

It is always difficult compiling lists and trying to remove the emotion of when I was photographing from what I believe are the best photographs. Either way the photography from 2015 has provided me with some of my favourite shots in my career.
