Travel Photography

All photographs by Dan Kosmayer

Travel photography takes viewers on journeys around the world. Everywhere we travel, we encounter unique sights and landscapes, encounter diverse cultures and people, and open up our worldview just that little bit more. Travel photography tells the history of the destination and inspires others to not just go to a new travel hotspot, but to learn more about it and love it for exactly the way it is. Some would say that a great travel photograph evokes emotion and makes the viewer 'feel' the location. From evoking a sense of wanderlust, to inspiring others to learn more and expand their horizons, travel photography is brings us together and helps us appreciate the amazing world that we live in.
