What’s the “best” travel photograph? It all depends on perspective.

This is why we put together Matador photo galleries – photographic essays on travel subjects or places that incorporate multiple points of view, or the work of various photographers. These are some of the biggest works we’ve created, with some galleries viewed by more than half a million people and getting hundreds of comments

With the participatory nature of new media, oftentimes the most revealing work about a place or an element of travel is more effectively expressed by a group of people than a single individual.

Have an idea for a photo gallery? Please let us know!
